This page is about the Gold Cable added by IndustrialCraft 2. For other uses, see Gold Cable.
The Gold Cable is a cable added by IndustrialCraft 2 (IC2). It is a tier three energy cable that allows the player to transfer mid-range EU to and from tier two machines like the Induction Furnace And Rotary Macerators.
The Cable needs insulation to prevent electrical shocks. It can be colored with a Painter.
While the 2x insulated Gold Cable was removed for 1.7.10, it was re-added for 1.12.2, and 2x insulated Gold Cable is required to completely prevent shocks.
The Golden Cable can handle 512 EU (high voltage) before vaporizing. The uninsulated Cable wire loses 1 EU every two blocks, whereas the insulated Cable loses 1 EU per 2.5 blocks.
