All Windows programs are designed to accept the characters typed from the computer keyboard. But very few programs can accept the measurement data sent from gage devices connected to a computer’s serial or USB port. Keyboard wedges were designed to address this issue...
The WedgeLink AT is a user-configurable hardware keyboard wedge that accepts input from any RS-232 device. With the WedgeLink AT, you can transfer RS-232 data into any PC application that accepts keyboard input. Some of the more common applications that are used with the WedgeLink AT include Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Access, etc.
WedgeLink AT also has the ability to pass the gage data through a parsing filter before sending to your PC. With the WedgeLink AT parsing function, you can extract just the information you need before sending to the PC. Once the initial setup is completed, this device is as simple for the operator to use as a “plug & play” wedge.
