Model 3 RDU controllers

Hi Everyone,

I'm wondering if anyone has experience or advice on controllers for the Model 3 rear drive unit for an EV conversion. I'm aware of two options:
Ingenext:

and EV-controls T-2C:

Both have some minor pro's and cons for convenience (programming over iPad vs PCAN) and price although the cheaper (ingenext) needs me to send the inverter so that might work out neutral in the end.

I used the Ingenix for my Tesla 3 battery controller. Fwiw I had a very good experience with Ingenix....they responded to my many questions and the reflash session went smoothly. I am not using the Tesla 3 drive unit so can't really comment on that.

I don't see the EV Controls app in the App Store. Got a link to it?
Yeah I found it in the documentation. Says it is not compatible with my iPhone. But seems to work on my iPad.

Hey @daggyPants, I was just wondering whether you managed to find out more about Tesla Model 3 rear drive unit controllers? I am starting a new project and I have the same concerns. Thank you.

I have been following work that Damien is doing with other people at openinverter forum, but their work is not done yet, as in, it's not "consumer" ready yet.

Hi, did you manage to successfully use the M3 pack for a non Tesla motor? If so I would be really interested in what you did, I can’t currently find a good solution to this. I emailed Ingenix and they were doubtful that the main battery contactors would open without the right signal from the Tesla drive motor.

I am successfully using the M3 pack with the Ingenix controller. However, I am using a Tesla ldu. Not sure how it would work with a different motor. I understand, however, that people are using the M3 pack in solar applications so I assume there is a work around. EVTV has a M3 pack and controller their manual might give some idea how they worked it out.
