Decoding Serial Interface for specific devices


Thread Starter

Anil Bhaskar

I need to equipment which can sit between a device like a weighing scale and a PC running a proprietary software connected via serial ports.

I want this equipment to capture and translate the command set being used by the software program and the device.

Please advice me for the kind of equipment and the place where I should look for it.
BlackBox may have what you need.
It's called SERIALTEST ComProbe. It analyzes serial communications and can capture the data to the hard disk. Pretty pricey$$$ but it works. Included are hardware, software and a Y cable.
