Copper Cables are Tier 1, the most common cable tier. They are only capable of handling Low Voltage (up to 32 EU/t), however, they suffer the third smallest distance-related energy losses out of all the conventional cables, not including Glass Fibre Cables and low voltage tin cable. When you insulate the copper cables, it suffers even less. Unlike HV cable, they can be only insulated once.They are also used in the creation of Electronic Circuits, a very common building block in machines.
They are worth 66.5 EMC of resources each (399 EMC for a set) in the Equivalent Exchange mod.
|Cable type||EU/b||Energy loss|
|Copper Uninsulated||~0.3||1 EU per 3 blocks|
|Copper Insulated||0.2||1 EU per 5 blocks|
Considered a low voltage cable, capable of carrying 32 EU/t.
1 Uninsulated Copper Cable=42.5EMC
1 Insulated Copper Cable=66.5EMC
Uninsulated Copper Cable
Insulated Copper Cable is the most common cable used to craft other advanced machinery and devices, most commonly the Electronic Circuit.
