What kind of specialty interface? Maybe it's not something they made up, but another RS standard. RS 4something is also common for industrial stuff, because it has better noise rejection and longer cable runs.

If it is that, you might buy canned hardware to do the trick, and find writups of the software issues already solved.

    It's supposed to be fully compatible with the Mars (the candy and vending company) Serial Interface. I am using canned hardware to convert it to RS-232; but it seems to have a bug in that I had to use this kludge to make it work.
