    A part of my job is to work with external sensors like tempurature, humidity, and wind.

    I would be willing to bet your sensor is a serial temperature sensor. You can go into Hyperterminal and see if you can figure out the communication perameters of this sensor.

    Your serial port, if you have one on your pc, is most likely com 1.

    Use these recommended parameters for Hyperterminal.

    Using Com1
    4800 baud, 8, none, and 1, no flow control
    9600 baud, 8, none, and 1, no flow control

    If you are not familiar with hyperterminal and don't know how to use it let me know.
