The Red Alloy Wire is a block added by the RedPower 2 mod. An upgraded and more flexible version of Redstone Dust [1]. Signals travel through wire for an extended range of up to 255m. It can be placed on all six sides of a block, allowing for vertical signal transmission and even hidden wire on the underside of blocks. Red Alloy Wire may also be insulated allowing multiple wires to run adjacent to each other without signal interference [2]. Red Alloy Wire may be placed on any non-transparent block [3], which will receive power from the wire. It can also be powered indirectly by powering the block it's placed on [4].

Red Alloy Wire (RedPower 2) can be used to create the following items:


  1. Unlike Redstone Dust, Red Alloy Wire is not destroyed when in contact with water. Instead, it will act like any other block and raise water.
  2. Alternatively, a Handsaw may be used to make RedPower Microblock strips which can separate one wire from adjacent ones, allowing more compact wiring.
  3. If the block to which the Wire is attached, is removed, the Wire will fall.
  4. Only uninsulated wires can be powered this way.
