The Junction Box is an installation which serves as a hub for power distribution and relaying signals between devices. For this reason, it is usually a crucial part of the submarine's wiring.

Function

The Junction Box distributes Electricity and Signals through its connected wires. Like all other wireable installations, every pin can have up to five connected wires.

Junction boxes deteriorate over time, when overloaded with power beyond their overload threshold, when powered and in water, and when on fire.

The overload threshold for damage on most vanilla Submarine's junction boxes is 1.7.

Usage

In order to edit the connections on a junction box, a screwdriver must be equipped in one of the two hand slots, and then the Junction Box Left left-clicked when highlighted. To add a wire to a connection, a wire must be equipped in the other hand, either before or after the Junction Box has been left-clicked.

Damage Values

Unsuccessfully attempting to repair a Junction Box damages the user.
