USB Postage Scale

Question asked by gmint on Feb 21, 2011


USB Postage Scale


I've looked for quite some time for a way to do this and I'm just coming up short. Has anyone had any experience with getting weights from a DYMO USB postage scale into FileMaker? I want to use the scale for something totally non-postage related and my knowledge just isn't deep enough to figure out how this thing works under the hood. There are no drivers so I would imagine that it shouldn't be all that complicated to read this data but I'm kind of at a dead end here. I've looked at Troi Serial plugin, but that doesn't really seem to read USB data (although seeing as how USB is a serial interface that seems odd to me). Any help would be greatly appreciated!
