5.1.1 - Instrument Interface Overview
The Instrument Interface module is used to define communication settings and data parsing templates to an instrument. These settings and parsing templates are then used to read data from a instrument and parse the raw data to extract desired values. The data from an instrument can come from a file, serial communication port, TCP or UDP connection, OPC device such as a PLC, external data or web service.
