Copper Cable is a type of Cable added by IndustrialCraft2. It is the second lowest tier of cable and can handle only Low Voltage (before Minecraft 1.6) or Medium Voltage (since Minecraft 1.6) at a moderate energy loss rate. Insulated Copper Cable can be painted with a Painter. It is used in many IC2 recipes, most notably the Electronic Circuit.
Copper Cable can handle a maximum of 32 EU/t (Low Voltage). Any higher rate will destroy the cable. This cable has a moderate distance-related energy loss, but because it can conduct only little power energy dissipates quickly.
|Cable type||Loss (EU/b)||Loss (EU/n blocks)|
|Uninsulated Copper Cable||0.3||1 EU every 3.33 blocks|
|Insulated Copper Cable||0.2||1 EU every 5 blocks|
Before Minecraft 1.6, an easy way to avoid energy loss with Insulated Copper Cable is to place a BatBox after every four pieces of cable.
