Items and machines in IndustrialCraft 2 are grouped into tiers based on the maximum EU it can output or receive per tick (EU/t).

Powering a machine or storage unit with too much EU/t will result in the machine exploding. For example, trying to power a Grid Macerator.png Macerator (tier 1) with 128 EU/t (tier 2) will result in the Macerator exploding, destroying it.

Grid Transformer Upgrade.png Transformer Upgrades can be used to increase the power tier of a machine by power tier per upgrade item.
