This page is about the Wire added by GregTech 5. For other uses, see Wire.

GregTech Wires are used to transfer GregTech 5's own Energy and in many crafting recipes.

The energy system is explained here. Wires have twice as much loss as Cables and can shock Players and Mobs touching them while transferring Energy. Wires can also power IC2 EU accepting Machines.

Wires can be made from many different conducting Metals and can have an thickness of 1x, 2x, 4x, 8x, 12x and 16x.

Also Covers can be used on Wires. Shutter Module and Machine Controller together can be used as power switch.


Materials of wire[edit | edit source]

  • If the max ampere of 1x Wire is nA, then the ampere of 2x/4x/8x/12x/16x wire is 2n/4n/8n/12n/16n.
