Post TETRIX motor controllers with EV3
I'm having an issue with external motors with the EV3. I configure an external motor controller, but then under motors, the drop down box for the TETRIX motor controller only has no motor as an option. My attachment shows the menu. I don't have this problem when programming with the NXT. I'm running RobotC 4.26

​This is to be expected - there is no support for TETRIX motors/servos yet with the EV3 platform. We hope to address this in a future update. This is listed on our downloads page: http://www.robotc.net/download/lego/

Okay, thanks for the clarification. I saw NXT External Controller (TETRIX, MATRIX) Support and just plugged in EV3 where NXT was because it was an update.

Is there an update on this issue?

I would like to use my EV3 to control the Tetrix motor and servo controllers and not an NXT.

Thanks,

Pericles

Ditto

I too would appreciate using my Tetrix HiTechnic controllers on the Lego EV3 brick

Hello, Why in robotC v.4.5, there is no support for ev3+tetrix? And when it will appear?
Thanks in advance

Post Re: TETRIX motor controllers with EV3
As of today, the EV3 does not support the TETRIX platform due to the changes of how the sensor ports work on the EV3 (EV3 uses UART based ports, NXT uses I2C based ports). This is not a ROBOTC limitation but rather a limitation of the EV3 hardware. We have been working for many months on a workaround/modification to the core LEGO firmware to enable this functionality - but as of today we haven’t been successful in reliably getting the EV3 to work with the TETRIX system.

I am sorry for the inconvenience.
