Experimental-Only Content: This information has been updated to the V2.X version of IC².
The most recent version of IC² is V2.8.221.

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.

Tier 1 - Low Voltage

Tier 1 machines can accept or output low voltage, or 0-32 EU. Most basic machines are tier 1.

Tier 1 Items


Tier 2 - Medium Voltage

Tier 2 machines can accept or output medium voltage, or 33-128 EU.

Tier 2 Items


Tier 3 - High Voltage

Tier 3 machines can accept or output high voltage, or 129-512 EU.

Tier 3 Items


Tier 4 - Extreme Voltage

Tier 4 machines can accept or output extreme voltage, or 513-2048 EU.

Tier 4 Items


Tier 5 - Insane Voltage

Tier 5 machines can accept or output "insane" voltage, or 2049-8192 EU.

Tier 5 Items
