The Induction Furnace is an advanced version of the Electric Furnace. It features 2 input and 2 output slots that can process items simultaneously. Doing so will also save 50% of the energy that would have been used had every stack been smelted by itself.
Over time, the Induction Furnace will build up heat. Since it starts at 0 heat, it starts off cooking slower, but when the heat has built up enough, it will smelt items much quicker. Applying a redstone current to the furnace will make the Induction Furnace continue to use power to heat up. At maximum heat, it takes 1 EU/t to maintain while idle.
The Induction Furnace can receive up to 128 EU/t and cannot be upgraded with a Transformer or Overclocker Upgrade, because it does not have the required slots. If you supply it with any more energy than medium voltage (128 EU/p), the Induction Furnace will explode! The Induction Furnace consumes 6000 (0% heat) to 208 (100% heat) EU per operation and requires a minimum of 16 EU/t to operate continuously.
In Automatic Processing Situations
When used in conjunction with BuildCraft Transport Pipes or RedPower 2 Pneumatic Tubes, any material for the input slots needs to come from the top or side of the Induction Furnace, while anything for the Battery slot should come from the bottom. Output can be taken from the sides of the machine. When delivering material for the input slots, the first slot must be filled completely before the second slot will receive input; this makes the Induction Furnace less efficient when piping material to it. This problem however can be solved by using a Turtle wrapping the Induction Furnace as an Inventory with OpenPeripheral and put the items in programmatically.
