Auto Redstone Machine Switch
|Auto Redstone Machine Switch|
The Auto Redstone Machine Switch is a machine cover added by GregTech 6 that turns machines on and off in response to Redstone signals, and will wait until the machine is finished with its current recipe before switching it off. Aside from waiting for the machine to finish, it is identical to the Redstone Machine Switch.
Normally, GregTech 6 machines will run constantly, consuming energy regardless of whether they have any work to do. A machine with an Auto Redstone Machine Switch installed will only run while the Switch is receiving a Redstone signal. When the signal is removed, the machine will stop running only after the current recipe is complete. This behavior can be inverted by using a Screwdriver on the cover. Additionally, if the machine is powered by an energy converter machine (such as an Electric Motor or Steam Engine) directly adjacent to it, the Switch will also control the converter.
