Environmental sensor & Arduino

Hello forum,

I have some questions about a project I am working on.

I wish to use an Arduino to collect values from a sensor that i have. This sensor is an environmental sensor which measures Oxygen & temperature in water. The sensor has a built in RS485 & SDI-12 transmitter.

Is there a way for the Arduino to collect the values from this sensor? And can I resend the measured values via a Xbee or ethernet shield?

Thanks for any help with this.

Cheers,
LJ

In the playground, there are several examples of RS485 communication and ethernet/xbee shields.
