DataWedge 5.0


IPWedge is a small Windows app that monitors a network port and receives scanned data sent by devices using the DataWedge IP Output Plug-in. The receiving PC inserts the data as keystrokes into the foreground application or the Windows Clipboard, essentially using the device as a wireless scanner.



Using IPWedge requires the following:

  • A PC with Windows XP, Vista or 7
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 (or later) installed
  • A Zebra device running Android 4.4 KitKat (or later)
  • DataWedge for Android 1.5 (or later)

1. Visit the Zebra Support Portal, enter "IPwedge" in the search box and download the appropriate version for the target device.

2. Install the .zip file on the system to which the scanned data will be sent.

3. Run the IPWedge app. A screen appears similar to the image below. Make a note of the IP address and port number (in the red box). IPWedge System Tray menu.
