HV Cable

ModIndustrialCraft 2

The HV Cable is a tier 3 energy cable added by IndustrialCraft 2. It allows players to transfer Energy Units (EU) in packet sizes up to 2048 EU/p (EHV = Extremely High Voltage). It can be insulated up to three times in order to reduce the level of energy that is lost.

Energy transfer

The HV Cable can handle a maximum of 2048 EU and suffers heavy energy loss, depending on how insulated the cable is.

Insulation Blocks per 1 EU loss
Not insulated 1
Insulated 1.05
2x Insulated 1.11
3x Insulated 1.25


To make an HV cable, the player needs Refined Iron Ingots and Rubber or Rubber Bars to insulate. Place the Cable with a piece of rubber on a Crafting Table and repeat to insulate twice or thrice.
