Ion Effect Modules are the enhancer modules for Ion Effect systems. This effect system can either add additional shield damage to a weapon system or increase shield defense to your ship. Connecting this module to its computer will increase the potency of the desired effect.

Place this module on a structure and connect it to its appropriate computer to either enable that system or enhance an existing one.
Ion Effect Modules much like any other enhancer module are designed to increase the power and effectiveness of its associated system. As an effect system this module will have differing effects depending on whether or not the effect computer is connected to a weapon system.
Offensively: Increasing the module count ratio on an Ion enhanced weapon will increase the damage dealt to the target's shields proportional to the weapon's damage output. At 100% ratio all of the weapon system's damage will be dealt directly to the shields power. At this stage no damage is dealt to the target at all. The module count ratio can be seen in the Weapons menu.
Defensively:Increasing the mass-to-module ratio on a ship will decrease the amount of damage that is dealt to its shields. At max efficiency (60%) a ship's shields will receive less than half of the damage it normally would. This increased resistance comes with a very steep energy cost.
