Thanks you very much for your email, i received it. I will work on this and will send a feedback to you.
Hi David I hope you're still reading this thread. I've recently been asked to develop a comm layer for the ELAN protocol, and I soon realized there's a lack on information on the web about it.
I read you developed VIs for it, so I'm asking where did you get the protocol specifications, and if you can share them with me.
My email is email@example.com - thanks a bunch for any help you can give!
I am very interested in some example vi about AK protocol over Ethernet port.
Any help would be very welcome.
if you give me an email address I can send some examples to you. Just reply to this thread.
Wow, I accidently ended up on the "other" end of this thread and realized it's fully five years old.
Five years and still useful - how cool is that?
This would be great! Thanks!

Great that people still find it useful.
I ran across this thread and I believe it answers my question. I'm ordering a CAI Analyzer which uses the AK protocol and intend to communicate with the device using Labview 2009. I'm looking for a starting point for setting up communication with the device (specifically it's a 600 Series NDIR CO Analyzer). It has an option for both RS-232 and TCP, so either example would be helpful right now.
I see this post has gone a few days without reply. You'll need a response from EECL (Kirk at Colorado State's Engines & Energy Conversion Lab) - he's written LV code for the CAI device (also resold by Siemens). It's a different protocol than the Siemens-developed ELAN devices (OXYMAT, ULTRAMAT).
Hopefully it's just the holiday break and he'll be back on here in a few days.
