GregTech 5 Transformers are the way to convert GregTech EU between Tiers. They are also used to convert IndustrialCraft 2 EU into GregTech EU. They are the only machines that can accept a higher voltage than their tier without exploding.
Transformers have five low-voltage sides, each with a single dot, and one high-voltage side, which features a 4-panel square. For facing and rotation, the high-voltage side counts as the front.
Transformers have two modes: Normal and Inverted. Modes are swapped by right-clicking with a Soft Hammer. In Normal mode ("Machine Active"), a Transformer accepts up to 1 Amp of current at any voltage up to 1 tier higher than its named voltage, through its high-voltage side. It then attempts to emit up to 4 amps of current (combined) at its named voltage , from its other 5 sides. In Inverted mode ("Machine Inactive"), the Transformer accepts up to 4 Amps of current at or below its named voltage through its 5 low-voltage sides, then attempts to output 1 Amp of current at 1 tier higher than its named voltage through its high-voltage side.
A Transformer's mode can also be determined by looking at it. When in Normal mode, the high-voltage side contains a small arrow pointing in from the corners of the 4 panels. When in Inverted mode, each of the low-voltage sides contain a smaller, light grey dot in the centers of their normal dots.
There are 9 different Transformers, each with their own Voltages.
