You might be interested in the Library Communication Framework (LCF) http://www.bic.org.uk/114/LCF/  "The LCF framework has been developed with the active participation of leading LMS and RFID developers".

"a set of library interoperability standards which defines a framework for the communication of data between self-service and other library terminal applications  to and from library management systems.This LCF standard is recommended by BIC as the best way to implement communications between systems within a library, for example between a Library Management System (LMS/ILS) and an RFID Self-Service Solution. There are various communication standards in use in the market in the UK and elsewhere including versions of SIP (Standard Interface Protocol). LCF supports the functionality in these standards but is also a framework seeking to enable systems developers to use and develop a common set of principles, variables and values to enable other standards to be developed".

Hi Daniel,

Have you had any luck with a sip2 testing tool? This will be a good control
to connect to your sip2 server port, before you start testing your
python/php tool. This testing tool was useful for us at Miami University
Libraries when we were setting up our open source sip2 self checkout. Here
is the link to the sip2 testing tool we used from the Central Library
Consortium.

Best,
