Data gathering from RS485 and USB ports simultanously?
Can the USB port on the mango ES (With the use of a serial converter) be configured to operate simultaneously with the RS485 port for data gathering?

Yes you can plug in additional serial ports into the USB ports on the MangoES. The serial adapter does need to be compatible with Linux. The port should be automatically recognized. You can go to a serial data source in mango and click the Refresh button next to the serial port drop down list to see and select the new serial port.
I'm pretty sure any serial port that uses the FTDI chips will work. We use these reliably: http://www.usconverters.com/usb-rs485-isolated-converter
