The Energy Counter is a block added by Nuclear Control that counts the overall amount of EU that have passed through a cable. The Energy Counter must be placed in-line with an IC2 cable. When placed the block can handle up to 32EU/t packets and outputs 32EU packets, at a maximum rate of 1 per tick. The side with the dot is the input side, all other sides are output. The Energy Counter block can be reoriented using an IC2 compatible wrench in the same way as a Transformer or Energy Storage block. The Energy Counter block can be removed with a stone pick or better. The Energy Counter can be upgraded with IC2 Transformer Upgrade to increase the maximum packet size and output rate.

Transformer Upgrades Max EU Packet and Output Rate
1 128EU
2 512EU
3 2048 EU
4 8192 EU

If you install 4 Transformer upgrades on the counter you will need to install up to 4 HV Transformers on the output to return the packets to a manageable size.

Tips[edit]

The Energy Counter (as well as its sister device the Average Counter) essentially functions as an upgradeable transformer, able to convert packets of any size into up to quadruple-Extreme Voltage. There is no equivalent IC2 device, as even the HV-Transformer is limited to 2048 EU/t; it is also far less expensive than the GregTech Supercondensator, and not limited to 8192 EU/t.
