Gold cables are Tier 2 cable type. They suffer higher distance-related energy losses than Copper Cables, but are able to carry Medium Voltage, up to 128 EU-p. Gold cables have 2 different levels of insulation, with the 2x insulation providing smaller energy losses per tile and less shock damage from high voltage.
|Cable type||Max packet||EU/b||Energy loss|
|Uninsulated Gold Cable||128 EU-p||0.5||1 EU/2 blocks|
|Insulated Gold Cable||128 EU-p||0.45||1 EU/2.22 blocks|
|2xIns. Gold Cable||128 EU-p||0.4||1 EU/2.5 blocks|
