There are many scientific, engineering, medical devices and instruments that use the RS-232 (serial port) interface to send data to a computer for further logging and analyzing. It works well when you can plug your device into your computer with a serial data cable. But, what if you need to gather information from remote devices that cannot be plugged into your PC directly? Even having a device located in the next room can became a real problem. Needless to say, that it is a BIG problem if you need to obtain data from a mobile instrument used to make measurements in different locations in your city or even in a wider area.
This is where ByteWedge Professional can help. In addition to the normal RS-232 data processing operations, the program also allows you to transfer data from remote devices across TCP/IP networks. Just plug a device into a laptop connected to your local network or to the Internet and receive data on your server as if it were directly connected to the server's serial port. You can easily process data from multiple devices on the same server saving the results into the same database.
Sometimes you cannot get your laptop connected to a network. ByteWedge can help you in this case too. ByteWedge comes with a freeware utility called Serial-File. This allows you to save data from a device to your laptop disk.
The server where your copy of ByteWedge professional is installed, will be able to read data from this file as if it were a serial port.
ByteWedge Professional includes a vast range of tools to process data from various devices. You can parse data on-the-fly, apply filters and load the results into databases or other applications. The program supports ODBC, OLE, DDE and other data interchange protocols. The program allows you to receive data from up to 255 local or remote devices simultaneously.
