WinWedge Pro (SoftwareWedge for Windows
- Professional Edition)
WinWedge Pro and WinWedge 32 Pro are advanced
products designed to handle even the most sophisticated
serial I/O requirements. They can collect data from and
control any serial device, no matter how complex
the serial output or how sophisticated the control required.
Collect data from and control industrial and laboratory
instruments, quality and process control devices, PDTs,
PBX systems, PLCs, etc.. Feed real time instrument data
directly into into any Windows 3.x, 95
or NT application program!
In addition to all the features
found in the WinWedge
Standard Edition, the Pro version has all the additional features
- Support for high speed data
(up to 56,000 baud)
- Support for new high speed
16550 UARTs and all available IRQs. WinWedge
32 Pro also supports up to 100 serial ports simultaneously
- Advanced Data parsing
and filtering capabilities are designed to parse
even the most complex serial input data streams.
- A Pre-Input Character
Translation Table lets you translate or remove
specific incoming characters BEFORE data is processed
by the Wedge. This allows you to simplify complex data
and greatly enhances the parsing and filtering capabilities.
- Support for Binary,
Hex, and Octal data. Binary to Hex and Hex to
Decimal or Octal to Decimal translation filters allow
the Wedge to work with devices that output binary, hex
and octal as well as ASCII data.
- A Disk File Logging
Mode allows data to be collected to a disk file
in the background while you work with other programs in
- Extended Serial
Output Options including the ability to place
a "Serial Output Buffer" directly into any DDE
supporting application. For example turn a cell in a spreadsheet
into a Serial Output Buffer so anything that you type
in that cell would be automatically sent out through the
serial port to your device.
- Over 30 Powerful
Math and String Functions allow you to apply
standard and many advanced math functions (multiplication,
trig. functions, averaging, etc) to incoming serial data.
- Optional "Hot
Key" Control of all WinWedge functions allows
you to control WinWedge Pro from your other Windows programs
with Hot Keys. This is extremely easy and is especially
designed for those who cannot or will not use DDE. Define
up to 50 Hot Keys to transmit prompts at a press of a
- A Virtual Instrument
Mode to simulate data from any serial device.
- Expanded DDE command
Set. This gives you more precise control over
all serial I/o functions directly from within your other
Windows application programs.
- Free FileWedge Software. This powerful
new Windows program sends data from any disk file either
as keystroke or by DDE into any Windows application. FileWedge
parses filters and formats file data before inputting
it into application programs. Log data to a disk file
with the optional disk file logging option in WinWedge
Pro and then use FileWedge to feed the data into an application
Expanded DDE support in the
Pro version allows other applications to completely control
the SoftwareWedge and all serial I/O. This lets you create
extremely powerful data acquisition and device control interfaces
from within any Windows application that supports DDE (i.e.
Excel, Lotus, Access, Quattro, InTouch, FixDMACS, etc.).
WinWedge Pro 32
is a true 32 bit version of WinWedge Pro (designed for Windows
95 and NT), providing higher speed - over 30% faster - data
acquisition and instrument control. It has all the features
of WinWedge Pro plus support for up to 100 serial ports, fully pre-emptive multi-tasking,
faster DDE, and native 32 bit processing. In addition it
supports TCP/IP as well as serial communications. Hence
you can collect data or send data out over a network (Intranet,
Internet or Ethernet) to any TCP/IP port address from within
ANY Windows 95 or NT application (Access, Excel, etc...).
The 32 bit version will only run on Windows
95 or NT.
The 16 bit versions are fully compatible with Windows 95
