New Item/Block of IndustrialCraft².

The MV Transformer is used to turn High Power (512 EUP) into Medium Power (128 EUP) and back. This is useful for powering advanced machines and for medium-range energy transport.

By default, the Transformer accepts 512 EUP input and outputs 128 EUP. A 512 EUP or higher rated cable must be wired into the output face (the 3-dotted one) and 128 EUP or higher rated cable must be wired into the other faces.

A Redstone signal may be applied to reverse the conversion, thereby emitting 512 EUP from the output face (the 3-dotted one), and accepting 128 EUP or lower from the input faces. In reverse operation, 512 EUP or higher rated cable must be wired to the output face and any rate cable may be wired to the input faces.

It can handle a maximum of one conversion per tick, limiting the maximum transfer to 512 EU/t in either mode.

When using any Transformer, remember that the 3-dotted side means higher current and the 1-dotted sides mean lower current. You can change the direction the 3-dotted side is facing by right-clicking a 1-dotted face with a Wrench.

Converting to MV:

In order to convert from HV to MV, you must point the cable carrying HV from a HV Transformer or MFS Unit to the 3-dotted side and then link a cable that can carry MV to one of the sides with a single dot. Then that cable will be carrying MV that you can link to advanced machines, store in a MFE Transmitter or convert to LV with an LV Transformer.

Converting to HV:

In order to convert from MV to HV, point the cable carrying MV from a MFE Transmitter or a LV Transformer to one of the one-dotted sides and then link a cable that can carry HV to the 3-dotted side. Do not forget to apply redstone to the MV Transformer.
