RS485 Shield

Hello all I just bought a RS485 shield, and have a general question about the RX/TX pins.

I see that my shield is connecting to the RX/TX pins on the Arduino.

Will this conflict with the serial communication to my pc?

Thankful for any guidance

Best regards Per-Jarle

I'm sure you meant to tell us which one.

I see that my shield is connecting to the RX/TX pins on the Arduino.

But, is it actually using those pins? All the Arduino pins should be connected to by the shield. But, that doesn't mean that the shield [u]uses[/u] the pins.

For something more than a smart-assed answer, you really need to provide more details.
