Have you tried Component Pascal (CP) - either BlackBox or GPCP for .NET?
You'll find links to both here:


Despite the name CP is more or less a superset of Oberon-2 and we use it for
almost all of our Oberon-related desktop and web-based programming. Both
have RS232 modules that are easy to use. They are called CommV24 in Blackbox
and System.IO.Ports.SerialPort in .Net. We used both when developing
Astrobe's RS232 upload and terminal communication facilities,
