New version of WinWedge

Version 4 of the convenient serial data acquisition software extends flexibility in porting serial data direct to any Windows application

TAL Technologies, Inc (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania), a leading provider of data acquisition software for a wide variety of industries, has announced through its UK distributor Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts) the release of WinWedge® Pro 4.0. WinWedge allows real-time data from any serial lab instrument and other serial devices to be collected and sent to any Windows application, as well as Citrix and DOS, thus eliminating slow, error prone manual data entry..

The new version of this simple yet extremely useful data acquisition utility extends WinWedge’s flexibility with an improved installation routine, system tray compatibility and the ability to send keystrokes to DOS applications and Citrix Windows as well as Microsoft Windows programs. The user’s manual and Help files have been rewritten and new examples demonstrate how to use WinWedge with the latest Windows applications such as the newest versions of Excel.

WinWedge inputs serial data directly into any PC application. It can be used to collect real-time serial (and TCP/IP) data from any RS232 instrument or device – scales and balances, gauges, pH/electrochemistry meters, laboratory instruments, analysers, micrometers, sensors, densitometers, GPS receivers, barcode scanners, magnetic stripe readers, ID tag readers, telephone systems and more – and feed it directly into Excel, databases, LIMS systems, MMIs, statistical and SPC software, to any other Windows application.

Simple to set up and operate, WinWedge lets you perform real-time analysis, charting and graphing of your device data in your preferred PC applications. Multiple instruments can simultaneously send data to different applications or to different fields within the same application if needed. Programming is not required to configure the software to collect data from and control most serial devices.

WinWedgeTM (originally SoftwareWedge) was first released in 1989 and is a tried and tested solution for serial data collection.

WinWedge serial data acquisition software, available in both Standard and Pro versions, is supplied and supported by Adept Scientific in the UK, Ireland, USA, Canada, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland.

With offices in the UK, USA, Germany and throughout the Nordic region, Adept Scientific is one of the world’s leading suppliers of software and hardware products for research, scientific, engineering and technical applications on desktop computers.

Origin lets you zoom in on an an area of the plot easily without having to rescale manually. I also love the data reader feature where you can follow a line or curve and view the exact coordinate values. Thanks for an awesome product!
