Is it possible to swithc between RS232 and RS485?

Hi Autelis.

My carrier heating system is still on the back burner (due to the $1000 cost of the RS232 interface for the carrier system!).
My next step will be using RS485 and seeing what I can do over that (apparently the proprietary bus is RS485).

Question: Is it possible to switch my Autelis RS232 device to RS485 and vice versa, or do I need to buy a separate RS485 interface; I notice the hardware looks the same and was hoping it was just a matter of swapping firmwares?

No unfortunately these devices ship with different hardware configurations. Thanks.
