The Conveyor Tube is used alongside several similar blocks to link inventories on a ship or station into a network. Once established, the conveyor network allows items to be easily transferred between blocks and will automatically move items as needed.
The Conveyor Tube is only able to transfer items in a straight line. When intersections or curves are needed, instead use a Conveyor or Curved Conveyor Tube, respectively.
A number of indicator lights appear on the fully-built Conveyor Tube, showing whether or not it is connected to an inventory on both sides of the tube, at which point it will change from red to yellow in color.
The Conveyor Tube consumes 40 W of power when placed in large ships and stations and 80 W in small ships. It consumes no power if inactive.
