Key Features

The WedgeLink SP is truly a plug ‘n play device. Connect your gage to the wedge, plug it into the USB port, and you are ready to go. No setup required.

  • Come with a 6″ USB cable is built in.
  • Supported characters include ESC, Tab, Backspace, Carriage Return, and ASCII characters 32 to 126. In other words, WedgeLink SP will transfer 4 control characters plus all human readable characters on the keyboard.
  • The 9-pin male D-Sub connector is configured like a standard PC serial port. This allows standard PC serial cables to be connected directly to the wedge. If the cable you have connected to WedgeLink SP fails (not uncommon with many handheld gages), you only have to replace the gage cable and not the entire wedge assembly.
