The Electrometer Sensor is a sensor added by GregTech 6 which measures the flow of electricity in EU through a wire. The total energy is measured, rather than the voltage or amperage separately.

Recipe[edit | edit source]

This information pertains to an older version of the mod.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Sensors can be rotated with a Wrench horizontally. A Monkey Wrench can be used to specify which of the five non-front sides reads the adjacent block space. Both tools display the helper grid, but respond to the area clicked on the thin model itself.

Using a Screwdriver on the upper display section toggles between decimal and hexadecmial notation. Using the Screwdriver on the six buttons in the lower left increases or decreases the averaging period for readings. Using the Screwdriver on the lower right icon section rotates between sensor modes:

00000EU Display raw amount
00000% Display percent of maximum wattage & Emit scaled 0-15
>0000EU Emit 15 IF greater than set point
=0000EU Emit 15 IF equal to set point
<0000EU Emit 15 IF less than set point
☉0000EU Emit 15 if NOT equal to set point
=100%EU Emit 15 IF maximum or overflow
<100%EU Emit 15 IF less than maximum

Many of these modes will cause the sensor block to become redstone powered under certain circumstances. While in any of the four compare to set point modes, the set point can be changed by clicking on the six buttons in the lower left with a useless item or empty hand, in the same way as the Screwdriver would change the averaging window.

Behaviour[edit | edit source]

The Sensor can show values between 0 and either 65535 (0xFFFF) if in hexadecimal mode, or 9999 if in decimal mode. If the target block transfers more than 10000 EU/t (high IV) in decimal display, or 65535 EU/t (mid LuV) in hexadecimal mode, it will display only the last digits of the whole reading.
