The best path is to check with Cobas. They make the equipment and they should provide you with support.

i contact with cobas Manufactures . they said that there are no SDK for communication. When machine Read Bar code it will Send you ENQ . and Host Will Send to Machine ACK . when this Operation is Success Full then Connection Will be Built for Communication or synchronization .We are Sending ACk to machine but against this ACk Machine not Responding ... have any Idea ??

You don't necessarily need an SDK. Most likely the machine uses serial combinations to send and receive data. For that look at the System.IO.Ports class from the framework. There are also ton of examples of this you can find using Google. However you will need documentation about what what the equipment is sending and what data it is expecting to receive.
