UART reading sensor from Atlas Scientific in Linx from Labview

Hello!! I'm new to the forum but I've been working with arduino and labview for a long time. I am working on a project to be able to read a Uart protocol sensor on pins 2 and 3 with Arduino using the makerhub linx tool kit. This sensor is from Atlas Scientific. I have reading code using arduino ide and reading in labview using VISA SERIAL, but I want help to do it using a code in linx from makerhub for labview directly or using a custom command to read a co2 sensor that uses the uart protocol on pins 2 and 3 for rx and tx.
Thank you so much.

You can make this very simple by getting a cheap USB-232TTL board like the one from FTDI, SiLabs, or CH34x, etc.; you don't need an Arduino, which uses its serial port to talk with LabVIEW to, in turn, talk with another instrument over serial.

 

What kind of Arduino do you have?
