Well, I for one, would use an interface for the "vernier" (the company has
no relation to me) sensors.  I like their sensors ... the hardware is very
reasonably priced and 6 years ago, I got their ULI (universal lab interface)
- software developers guide (the specs) which I used to control the ULI via
kermit.  I just dusted it off my shelf - (hardcopy only :-( ).  I don't know
if the ULI specs have changed since then though.
