WedgeLink Lite & Standard

WedgeLink Lite & Standard

Part Number: WLNK-LE / WLNK-SE

The WedgeLink software wedge is available in 2 editions: Lite and Standard. Both editions are full featured and the only difference between them is that the Lite edition does not support data parsing except for the addition of a date/time stamp.

A fully functional 3-day evaluation of WedgeLink Lite/Standard can be downloaded below so that you can “try before you buy.” Before you start your 3-day evaluation you can run WedgeLink in the Preview Mode which gives you access to all features except transferring measurements to applications or writing data to a file. With the Preview Mode you can test your parsing. The Preview Mode does not affect the 3-day Evaluation period.

Important Note! MicroRidge also offers the WedgeLink SP and WedgeLink AT “hardware wedge” products for serial output devices. You should consider these products before purchasing a software wedge program. Hardware wedges do not require software to function, making them a preferred solution for many situations. You can find more information on hardware wedges at this link, by viewing the videos on our WedgeLink Videos & PDFs page, or by contacting MicroRidge.

There are two types of testing built into WedgeLink:  Data Parsing (WedgeLink Standard only) and Serial Communications.  Often the information coming from your serial device is in a different format than what many customers realize.  The testing features we have built into WedgeLink will enable you to get your system up and running in a minimum amount of time.

  • Data Parsing testing allows you to simulate the input from your serial device so that you can verify that you have properly set up your data parsing.
  • Serial Communications testing allows you to verify the format of the information that is sent from your serial device, and to test the commands that you may need to send to your serial device.  ComTestSerial is the serial communications test program included with WedgeLink.

Send Commands

  • You can specify up to 100 commands.
  • You can specify which serial port(s) are to receive the commands.
  • 6 commands can be assigned to the command button on the main WedgeLink window.
  • Specify number of times the command will be repeated.
  • Specify delays within commands.

Typical Instruments used by our WedgeLink Customer

You can use virtually any serial device with WedgeLink.  It will work with RS-232, RS422, and RS485 devices . . . plus hundreds of other instruments and devices.  If you have a question about a particular instrument or device you are using, please contact us.
