Today we are going to explain an interesting feature which is Weigh bridge Integration in Odoo.
One of our major client sarmix who are in the Readymix Industry have a Weigh bridge Integration that is having a serial port. So we installed a light weight python server(named Tornado) in client machine and run the a script in client machine. After running this script on client machine we listened to url http://ip:8888/fetch_wt .
So we called a url and parse the information in Odoo. The url fetch the current weight from weighing bridge when ever this url is called.
If the Odoo server environment is locally hosted, we dont need any public ip. Otherwise we need a public ip for the machine that connected with weigh bridge.
