All plates are a type of switch that can be placed onto the surface of a block. If connected, by redstone wiring, to an object (or placed adjacent to a block that can be powered), it will provide a Redstone signal to that object or block when stepped on by the specific entity for that plate and will stop when stepped off.
The mod also adds silent versions of the plates, which make no sound, and shrouded versions of the plates, which are translucent. There are versions of the plates which combine both of these features.
