Capacitor Bank

The Capacitor Bank functions as the sole form of scalable power storage for Ender IO. It is completely modular, meaning that they can be joined in a multiblock structure, adding to the group's storage and I/O capabilities. There are 3 tiers of capacitor banks. Basic Capcitor Bank, Capacitor Bank, and Vibrant Capacitor Bank.

Name Storage Max I/O
Basic Capacitor Bank 1,000,000 RF 1,000 RF/t
Capacitor Bank 5,000,000 RF 5,000 RF/t
Vibrant Capacitor Bank 25,000,000 RF 25,000 RF/t

GUI

CapBankGUI.png

The Capacitor Bank has a GUI consisting of four primary parts, with a label indicating the maximum total output rate of energy for the Capacitor Bank across the very top.

  • The left side of the GUI shows a power meter. This meter indicates the currently amount of MJ stored within the Capacitor Bank, as well as the maximum total MJ it is capable of storing.
  • The very middle of the GUI holds the "Max Input" and "Max Output" text fields. These two fields can be edited to adjust the maximum amount of power you want to restrict a Capacitor Bank to input or output, up to the maximum possible for that entire Capacitor Bank based upon the label across the very top of the GUI.
  • Across the bottom are four charging slots (labelled with lightning bolts for easy visual convenience) which you can use to recharge any equipment capable of using MJ.
  • Along the right side of the GUI you can see two buttons holding redstone torch icons. These two buttons can be used to control the redstone interaction of the Capacitor Bank, allowing you to do such things as shut down all power output from a Capacitor Bank with the flip of a lever.

Energy Storage

  • A single Capacitor Bank block starts off capable of storing 250,000 MJ with a maximum power output flow rate of 100 MJ/t.
  • One Capacitor Bank block can be placed directly adjacent to another existing Capacitor Bank block, allowing for the creation of a multi-block power storage structure.
  • Each block added to a multi-block Capacitor Bank structure directly adds its own values on to the existing maximum values of the structure.
  • A Capacitor Bank consisting of two blocks has a maximum power storage of 500,000 MJ with a maximum possible output flow rate of 200 MJ/t.
  • A Capacitor Bank consisting of four blocks would have a maximum power storage of 1,000,000 MJ with a maximum possible output flow rate of 400 MJ/t.
  • A Capacitor Bank consisting of eight blocks would have a maximum power storage of 2,000,000 MJ with a maximum possible output flow rate of 800 MJ/t.

RF Connections

  • When a machine or cable using the RF API is connected to a capacitor bank the direction of power flow must be defined as either input only or output only. One is automatically selected and can be changed by right clicking on the connected face with a wrench.
  • EnderIO conduits and machines will handle in/out connections correctly and generally behaviour best if left in this mode.
