I have an instrument that can transmit at two different baud rates 9600 & 56000. Can you send a command from WinWedge to the instrument to switch baud rate & then start receiving data in the new baud rate?
Yes you can send commands from the wedge to your instrument. Changing the baud rate can be done manually from within the wedge, or programmatically from within a macro DDE commands. For more flexible configurations the wedge is often set up to be controlled programmatically from within an excel module, or an access module or a visual basic project. From within the Analyze window you can send commands out the serial port. From the DEFINE MENU you can define HOT-KEYS and BUTTONS which would allow you to send commands out the serial port with a button or hot key.
The manual also contains many macro examples for communicating with the wedge from within an MS-OFFICE application.
