Windows service to communicate with device via com port


We need an application that will send/receive requests to/from a gasoline pump using a serial interface to track the amount of gas being used. This is a gas pump in a trucking facility. We are trying to find out if gas is being stolen so need to track it with timestamp so we can review associated video to see who is using gas at any given time. It must use the Veeder Root EMR3 OBC Serial Commands Protocol (included pdf). A Windows service seems like the best option, however, feel free to suggest an alternative. It needs to run on Windows 64-bit OS including Windows 7/8.x/server 2008/2012. We will need a GUI for setting configuration options and for testing.

The protocal is attached as a pdf. See attached word document for requirements. The document also includes questions you must answer in your bid. DO NOT POST GENERIC BID IT WILL BE IGNORED.

Skills: C# Programming, Engineering, Software Architecture
