New to this forum and I am a completely dummy when it comes to communication. I am limited on the cables I have and am wondering if this would work. I am attempting to talk to a flow transmitter that has 232 communication. the device has 3 pins to connect to. I currently have a usb serial cable ("black box" cable with 9 male pins). I also have a kayden sca cable which I believe is a rs 232 to 485 converter. can I plug this into the serial cable, and then run 3 wires from the terminal connections (transit, receive, gnd) to the 3 pins (clamp them onto pins) on the flow transmitter to connect? or will this not work since this is a 232 to 485 converter and the device uses 232. attached are some pictures
