Is possible to use the dissolved oxygen sensor with Industruino?

Hello, I need to use this sensor for an application:

http://5hertz.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=895

This sensor communicates through the serial port to a standard Arduino, is using an RS232 protocol.

Is possible use this sensor with Industruino through the RS485 port?

Dear José Luis,

I've checked the user manual of this sensor and it seems this sensor uses normal TTL serial. So it can connect without problem to Industruino via the RX/TX pins. Industruino PROTO has these pins exposed on the green screw connectors, IND.I/O has them on the 14pin IDC expansion connector.

Best Regards,

Loic

But I am using the Ethernet module for that reason I can not use the IDC connector or am I wrong ? I was thinking of using the RS485 port with a circuit to convert RS485 / RS232. Is possible??

Thank you for the answer , I'm using the Industruino IND.I / O and did not know that the RX / TX pins are not concerned when the IDC port is used with the Ethernet module. The question now is how that port management , Serial1.beginin or Serial2.beginin2

In case you use Industruino PROTO the RX/TX lines are also available on the green screw connectors. In case you use Industruino IND.I/O you could solder some connections to the RX/TX pins of the IDC connector (these lines are not used by the ethernet module).
