Shaft power bus controller is the power input unit in the Shaft Power Bus distribution setups. Only one bus controller is needed per chain of units. The controller distributes power equally among chained power buses, so the power output per bus unit is dependent on the initial power source and number of activated shaft power bus unit sides in the chain.

The controller needs lubricant to function, which has to be supplied via a lubricant hose from the top or bottom side. Power can be supplied to the controller only through the back notably different in appearance from the 3 sides that connect to the shaft power buses.

When splitting the power, always set down the controller first, and then chain power buses in order from the controller, in order to maintain proper connection of the buses to the controller.

Rotarycraft Handbook DescriptionEdit

"The shaft power bus controller is the brain of a shaft power bus unit. This multiblock structure can distribute power intelligently depending on the number of selected outputs. This makes it far easier to use one engine for multiple machines. Each selected output receives an equal fraction of the input torque, at the input speed. The bus requires lubricant to function."

Tips & TricksEdit

  • Controller response to a screwdriver right click can be a little slow. Give it more than a few seconds to rotate after clicking.
