How to get/receive a realtime data from an instrument with Socket ActiveX

Jul 07 '13 at 00:59

Hi all...

I have an instrument. The instrument sends real-time data every 1 minute to a computer. The computer will always receive the data from the instrument. IP address of the instrument is with port 9881. I'm making an application to receive the data. I use the Chilkat Socket ActiveX component in Delphi.

I have tried using hyper terminal using the TCP / IP port and I was able to receive data from the instrument, and the results are as shown below: alt text

My question: How do I make the application by using the Chilkat Socket ActiveX in Delphi? How is an example of the source code?

Thank you. Regards
