This page is about the XOR Gate added by Project Red. For other uses, see XOR Gate.
The XOR Gate is a redstone circuit added by Project Red. It is a logic gate for complex redstone circuits. It emits a redstone signal, depending on the number of incoming signals (see Usage).
The circuit would be possible with Vanilla redstone mechanics, but this block reduces the size of the circuit to 1 block. This makes complex circuits clearer and easier to control.
In electronics, this gate enables the physical execution of the Boolean function "XOR (exclusive OR)".
For easier usage, NEI and WAILA can be installed, which shows the input and output of the XOR Gate.
The XOR Gate has two input sides and one output side for red alloy cables, redstone, an adjacent circuit, machine, lamp or anything that can be controlled with redstone signals.
Achieved a redstone signal only one input side (no matter which side), then a redstone signal is emitted on the output side. If on both input sides reaches a signal, then no signal is transmitted. The same if no signal reaches the gate.
Using the screwdriver from Project Red, the orientation of the gate can be changed freely in all four directions.
