 A **quadrature encoder interface**. If you don’t have any idea what this is, Wikipedia explains in an easy way: [[wp>​Rotary_encoder#​Incremental_rotary_encoder|Incremental rotary encoder]]. The encoder interface is compatible with the majority of popular optical and magnetic encoders integrated with motors or sold separately. A **quadrature encoder interface**.

 RoboCORE is fully compatible with servomotors from LEGO® Mindstorms®. There are 3 types of LEGO® servomotors:​ motor from NXT/NXT2.0 kit and two types from EV3 kit. In fact, they are motors with [[:​quadrature encoder]]. RoboCORE is fully compatible with servomotors from LEGO® Mindstorms®.

 Remember that LEGO® motors have 9V nominal voltage and when you supply RoboCORE with higher voltage, you should limit the PWM duty cycle.\\ Remember that LEGO® motors have 9V nominal voltage and when you supply RoboCORE with higher voltage, you should limit the PWM duty cycle.\\
 To connect the LEGO® motor you do not need to solder anything, just use the adapter described here: [[hMotor and hSensor connectors]]. To connect the LEGO® motor you do not need to solder anything, just use the adapter described here: [[hMotor and hSensor connectors]].

 It has the same functionality as LEGO® motor, but is more robust (metal casing, mostly metal gears) and suitable for professional applications. Can be identified by 6 wires coming out from the encoder board. It has the same functionality as LEGO® motor, but is more robust (metal casing, mostly metal gears) and suitable for professional applications.

 Of course, in many cases you don't need the encoder - e.g. if you need to drive wheels without sensing their position. In that case you can use a simple DC motor with gearbox.
