Dear All,

I am new with the concept of hardware interface.
My requrement is, suppose one weighing machine is there. We have multiple LT terminals that are connected to PC. Each has own IP adress. Each terminal sends the weighing data string(containing net weight and gross weight).

Means I have to pull that net weight and gross weight reading data in to my software.

So for that what are the thing to be require for that harware interface. And is some coding required plz send me.

Plz explain me step by step.

Thanks and Regards

    Dear Harish,

    Machine interfacing is normally a very specific thing.
    The manufacturer normally provides an API (Application programmer interface) dll for interfacing with the hardware. It is similar to a printer driver.
    Go to the vendor
