Tic T834 doesn't have a COM port name

Hi! I’m trying to run the example code for serial to Python for my T834 stepper motor controller: https://www.pololu.com/docs/0J71/12.7

I can’t quite figure out what to put for port_name = “”

I don’t see a COM device in my device manager other than Intel. The Tic 834 is listed under Universal Serial Bus Devices instead.


The Tic does not have a USB virtual COM port. To use that example code, you will need to connect the Tic’s TX, RX, and GND pins to a serial port on your computer or a USB-to-serial adapter. If you are using a USB-to-serial adapter, the port name you are looking for will depend on the operating system and what specific adapter you are using.
