Sensors are logic blocks which, when activated by a logic signal, output a high (on) signal if the conditions they are measuring have been met. They can measure the status of a variety of systems, such as power, shields, and cargo. The value at which they return a high signal is set by linking Activation Modules to them, and activating a number of them. The sensor will then activate when its measured value has the same ratio of current:maximum as the Activation Modules have on:total.

Item Description

The sensor blocks is used to check the condition of a linked system.
It requires a touching activation block which will be used as output.
It also requires a block linked to the sensor to trigger a check. A clock that periodically sends a signal to the sensor is recommended.

Link the sensor to any of these blocks:

- power reactors
- power auxiliaries
- shields
- doors/force fields
- radar jammer
- cloaker
- jump drive
- cargo

The sensor has a default state of 0%. Meaning that it will trigger for blocks in an "off" state or for systems that are depleted such as 0 power or 0 volume used.
You can link the sensor to a number of activation modules to set any % other than 0. It works like a rail speed controller using ratios. 3 true linked activation modules out of 6 will set it to 50%.
