Hello,

I own a Pololu micro serial controller. Can the Pololu serial controller be detected and used with the Phidget web server? I have it plugged in, but it is not detected. This seems of course that I only have the RS-232 input cable connected. (Output but no input)

Should I be using the Logic Level input/output instead, or am I totally off course? Do I need to buy a Phidget compatible servo controller?

Thanks for any help.

Only Phidget devices can be used with the Phidget API, sorry:(

You can control certain devices using a Phidget though. A good example of this would be using a Phidget 4-motor Servo controller (http://www.trossenrobotics.com/store/p/3188-Servo-4-Motor-Controller.aspx) to control PWM driven Speed controllers (http://www.trossenrobotics.com/store/c/2666-DC-Motor-Controllers.aspx). Unfortunately, the Pololu serial controller doesn't fall in this category.
