What is a .SW3 file?

An .SW3 file is a type of configuration file used by a software called TAL Technologies WinWedge. This software is designed to gather data from devices that use RS232 communication, like sensors or scanners, and then automatically send this data into other applications such as Microsoft Excel or Access.

The .SW3 file contains all the necessary settings that tell WinWedge how to connect to the RS232 device and where to send the collected data. This is very useful because once you set up the configuration and save it as an .SW3 file, you don't have to set it up again. You can simply reuse the same file whenever you need to perform the same task, saving time and effort.

To create an .SW3 file, you need to use WinWedge. Start by opening WinWedge and go to the File menu, then choose 'New'. Here, you can enter all the required settings for your specific RS232 device and the target application (like Excel). Once you're done, go back to the File menu, click 'Save' or 'Save As...', and save your settings as an .SW3 file.

When you need to use an existing .SW3 file, you can open it by going to the File menu in WinWedge and selecting 'Open...', or if you have WinWedge installed on your computer, you can just double-click the .SW3 file. This will launch WinWedge and automatically load the configuration settings contained in the file.

WinWedge can work with a variety of serial devices, including but not limited to ion meters, GPS receivers, gauges, spectrometers, conductivity meters, pH meters, and thermocouples. This makes it a versatile tool for many different types of data collection tasks.
