COMIML lets you read and control almost any serial device connected to the PC's COM port and communicating over RS-232, RS-422, RS-485 or Modbus. These include such diverse equipment as electronic balances used in a laboratory, GPS receivers used in the field and data loggers used in process plant. The COMIML driver reads data from the COM port, and passes it to the Windmill logging, charting and DDE Panel programs. You can also use other Windows software, like Excel or Access, to display and analyse the data in real-time.
Simply select your communication settings or type your instrument's commands: no need for any programming.
COMIML can control both those serial devices that continuously output messages, and those that require commands before supplying data. With a flexible approach to building command strings, and parsing the received data strings to extract data values, the majority of analytical instruments are supported. These include GPS, sonar, gyro compasses, motion sensors, , gas analysers, pH transmitters, power meters, data loggers, titrators, particle analysers, conductivity meters and laboratory scales.
You have the freedom to mix and match equipment from many different manufacturers in many combinations. For example, serial devices from A&D, Anton Paar, Ashtec, Bruël & Kjær, Datel, Datataker, Ecom, Edge Tech, Electro Industries, Fisher, Furuno, Garmin, Horiba, Mettler Toledo, Motorola, Molyteck, Newmar, Nu-Metrics, Omnistar, Omron, Orion, Parallax, Paroscientific, Patton, Phytron, Quantum Logic, Quest Scientific, Sartorius, Siemens, Telegan, Telemecanique, Texas Instruments, Transcell and TTi have all been handled by Windmill. Many channels of data can be accepted from each instrument.
