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.
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

|0.8||1 EU every 1.25 blocks|
