comment How can you test communication on a COM/Serial port?
@wmz i have just checked the setting on the scale again. (BAUD rate = 9600, 8 bits no parity, no handshake, 1 stop bit.) Using the print button on the scales send a seemingly random part of the weight to the com port.

comment How can you test communication on a COM/Serial port?
Thanks, when using arduino, all i need to set up seems to be the BAUD rate. i tried them all (the correct one is 9600 according to the settings on the scales) and all of them actually just gave a diffrent character spam. 9600 was mainly an Y with double dots on it combined with a square. Do you have any idea why this would happen? or is that purely an issue with the scales sending this data?

comment Can a UPS be too powerful?
the took a look at the UPS, one at the server, and said, this won't work. they didn't say this to me and apparently, they didn't say anything more then, it won't work. seems strange since its more powerfull then the current one and the most powerfull one of its line.

the new one is a dell one, the same brand as the one our audit was partnered with.
