How to attach several sensors to single EV3 port
EV3 Sensor Adapter with SPLIT-Nx
Splitter with 3 sensors for EV3
The limited number of ports on the EV3 programmable brick is a problem for complex projects that require more than 4 sensors. To solve this problem, use SPLIT-Nx port splitter. The EV3 Lego sensors, however, cannot be used directly with this device due to a different connection type (UART). The EV3 Sensor Adapter converts these sensors to be read using I2C, thus solving this problem.
Instructions
Ensure the I2C addresses of the EV3 Sensor Adapters are different from each other.
  • Use Explorer Program to find the device address (default is 50) of ESA.
  • Change I2C addresses using Address Change Program so that all ESA devices connected to SPLIT-Nx have an unique I2C Address.
Connections
EV3 with splitter and sensorsEV3 Sensor Adapter is marked with 'Host' and 'EV3 Sensor' for respective connections.
  • Connect Split-Nx to desired port of EV3 brick.
  • Connect the Spilt-Nx to the cable marked 'Host'.
  • Connect the EV3 sensors to the cable marked 'EV3 Sensor'.
Programming
See EV3-NXT_withSplit Sample Program for reference.
  1. Use multiple Mindsensors EV3-SensorAdapter blocks.
  2. Wire the outputs as desired.
  3. Choose desired mode corresponding to the sensor being used.
  4. Ensure port and I2C address is correct for each block.
  5. Choose desired inputs if necessary.
Attaching several of mindsensors' sensors to EV3

You can attach multiple sensors to EV3 using Port Splitter.
Simply attach Port Splitter to EV3 sensor port and attach mindsensor's sensors to splitter.
In your program use the usual block of the sensor, in the block, specify the port to which the Splitter is attached.

Note that you can attach only I2C sensors to Splitter (that includes most of the sensors, except for NXTSumoEyes).
