Uses[edit | edit source]

The Power Sensor can be used to detect when there are changes in the flow of power to the connected platform, such as losing or gaining power. This can be useful to shut down or start parts of players' bases when the state of solar and wind changes. This can also be useful to detect when power shuts down and trigger Generators to turn on to provide extra power at nighttime.

Power Sensors currently have three different settings to change from, each sending a signal when a state change is detected:

  • Gained or Lost: Will send a signal when power is gained or lost. It must first lose power before being able to detect power gain again.
  • Gained: Will send a signal each time that power is gained.
  • Lost: Will send a signal each time that power is lost.
