Automated data acquisition with TWedge - Keyboard Wedge, Software Wedge, Barcode Wedge
TWedge extends arbitrary software systems or databases with real-time data acquisition services. Modifications of the target system are not required!
Within seconds device data from USB, Bluetooth, RS232, RS485, UDP or TCP/IP interfaces is captured with arbitrary applications, databases or ERP systems (e.g. barcode-scanner, scales, gauges, controller, PLC, RFID controllers, RFID tags, ...). This software wedge reads data from external devices automatically. The captured data is reliable transferred to target applications (e.g. to SAP R/3) via direct database (ODBC) or file access, or by simulating keystrokes (keyboard wedge mode).
Each data acquisition requirement is solved by TWedge in an elegant, cost-effective and flexible way. This software wedge operates as background application (like the system clock), receives device data automatically and forwards it to target applications or databases via multiple methods in real time. Because of the script-based approach TWedge can be configured to meet all your requirements!
Highlights: + simple setup + works with Microsoft Office, ERP systems, web applications and browsers, databases, ... + for devices supporting USB HId profile, serial port, TCP, UDP or Bluetooth interface + bi-directional device communication + automatically recovers lost Bluetooth or TCP/IP connections + integrated Scripting + direct database access (ODBC) + direct file access + hotkey support + timer support + keyboard wedge mode + data logging + correct handling of binary device data like NULL + protocol conversion (e.g. COM to TCP) + background operation + simple deployment
