I would like to begin this project by having someone write a piece of software in C or any other language that will work that is able to communicate with a solar inverter (SMA). The solar inverter manufacturer has provides a C language API that should make this task much easier.
The solar inverter is located on a local intranet or via a RS232 connection. The software must be able to communicate to the inverter through this connection access the most recent data and then convert to XML format before finally posting the information to a web servers SQL database. That is the completion of this project
To provide more context to the project, the idea is that once the data is available in the SQL database I will then be able to display the output of the solar inverter on a live website.
This initial program is only the first part of this project. Whoever selects to work on this project will also have additional future work as there are many stages to this projects implementation.
I have attached the inverters DATA protocol. Lastly I am also open to other suggestions on easier ways to achieve the same outcome. Fundamentally what I need is software that will take the data from the solar inverter and send it to a online off site database.

We have good hand on Flex Web and Air application with php-mysql database connection, Hope we will meet all your requirement please reply as soon as possible.
I have worked with proprietary hardware APIs in the past. I have also interfaced with databases using SQLAPI++. This I should be able to do easily provided with an API for the inverter.
