The CMC Open Protocol API implements Open Protocol over TCP using the CMC Driver Framework. It provides an application programming interface to implement a wide variety of MIDs. The API accepts and returns data in pre-formatted clusters, as well as provides access to the raw data. 

The API includes the necessary MIDs to establish a connection, manage a keep-alive, enable/disable tools, select applications, subscribe to tightening results, select linking groups and more.

The CMC Open Protocol API is designed for those interested in writing their own torque tools driver or who would like to implement their own solution with Open Protocol. For those who would like to work with a torque tool immediately, please see the CMC Driver for Open Protocol Torque Tools
