Product Description

WedgeLink AT RS-232 Interface Box to USB Keyboard

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.  It is not uncommon for a serial device to output more than just the measurement (date, time, units, etc.).  With the WedgeLink AT parsing function, you can extract just the information you need before sending to the PC.

  • Plug directly into the USB port; looks like a keyboard to your PC.

Automatic Baud Rate Detection

A unique feature of WedgeLink AT is the ability to automatically determine the serial baud rate and communication parameters.  It is not uncommon that you are not sure what parameters your serial device is set to and you have no idea where the manual is.  If you can initiate a reading from your serial device by pressing a send or print button, you can have WedgeLink AT automatically determine the serial parameters.
