I'm getting circuit overloads on my 20kw backbone in my current colony.
I've dealt with this before. The standard answer is battery-based switching "transformers." The last time I built a set of those, they proved unreliable. The circuit shutoffs would get stuck open or closed, and stop responding to automation signals.
Here's the design I used before:
The logic is sound; there's a single control point (battery #1), which ensures that of a shutoff switch pair, top row or bot
OK, @TLW, since you marked my response as "confusing," let me lay it out for you in detail.
The problem is not the automation circuitry. Examine the circuit in my original post. There's a single control point, one of the smart batteries. That battery always puts out "true" (green) or "false" (red) on the automation circuit. That in turn controls the four shutoffs. Each of those receives either a red (off, disabled) or green (on, enabled) signal. Since those are connected in pairs, and in ea
