The Fluid Reader is a block added by Practical Logistics 2. It is used to read and list all the fluids in the inventories of connected blocks. To connect a block to a Fluid Reader, place a Node on it and then run Data Cables from it to the Fluid Reader. Or, to connect the block wirelessly, use a Transceiver. Data is inputted through the dark blue side of the Fluid Reader and outputted through the light blue side.

The Fluid Reader can also be used to create the Wireless Storage Reader.
