How to connect to a USB device in linux which does not appear as a ttyUSBn file [closed]

http://stackoverflow.com – I am attempting to connect to a USB device (specifically a SICK Sensors TiM310 Laser Range Finder) in ubuntu. Normally, when I connect a USB device, such as our GPS, a file handle appears in /dev as ttyUSBn (where n is an int between 0 and 9). For this device, however, no such file appears (and no new file is created directly in /dev). Using lsusb I have a bus number and device number, and I can confirm that the device is being seen by linux, as follows: Bus 001 Device 009: ID 19a2:5001 How can I cause the /dev/ttyUSBn file to be created?
