The IRLink uses Infrared signals to communicate with trains, Power Functions Motor controller and the Mindstorms RCX . Control the speed and direction of up to three LEGO R/C trains (7897 and 7898) and other sets including the new Technic Motorized Bulldozer (8275) and the Monster Dino (4958). The IRLink enables NXT programs to read values from RCX sensors and control motors connected to the RCX.
Although theoretically compatible, latency and loss of information can occur when using this sensor with an EV3 brick.
