HV Cable is a Cable added by IndustrialCraft2. HV cable is the strongest conventional cable. HV cable has 3 different levels of insulation, with higher levels providing less energy loss per block. Insulated HV Cable can be painted with a Painter.

Considering that a shock from a poorly insulated HV cable will most likely prove fatal, it is recommended to fully insulate it, unless the cable is located in a completely unreachable area. Even then, insulation should be applied to reduce the massive energy loss. The only exception being if you want to use the damage of a HV cable as a weapon.

Although in-game it currently lists "4xInsulated", that is incorrect as you are adding a layer of insulation each time, not doubling the insulation each time. It is actually "3xIns" and should get renamed eventually in some future patch.

Energy[edit]

HV Cable can handle a maximum of 2048 EU/p (Extreme Voltage). Any higher and the cable will melt! This cable has an extremely high distance-related energy loss.

Cable type EU/b Energy loss
Uninsulated HV Cable 1

1 EU every block

Insulated HV Cable 0.95

1 EU every 1.05 blocks

2xIns. HV Cable 0.9

1 EU every 1.11 blocks

4xIns. HV Cable[sic]

0.8 1 EU every 1.25 blocks
