Description[edit]

Used to move gasses from pipes, by using its inward or outward switches. It needs to be powered to function.

Active vents have a build-in pressure sensor and will use it to try to set the room pressure to the value of the "PressureExternal" parameter. A vent operating in Outward mode will stop when the pressure is greater than or equal to this value. A vent operating in Inward mode will stop when the pressure is less than or equal to this value. It seems to be very good about hitting the target pressure. This parameter is set to its default values every time the mode switch is used, so when adjusting it in MIPS code remember to set the Mode first, and then set PressureExternal. Default values are 101kPa for Outward and 0kPa for Inward.

This reset behavior can be inconvenient on worlds like Loulan whose atmosphere is well above 101kPa. Manually-operated "airlocks" for greenhouses can not pump back up to Loulan atmosphere during the exit cycle. If the pressure is already >101kPa the vent will have no effect, and if it is <101kPa the vent will stop when it reaches 101kPa.

Note: The insert slot currently takes any item and seems to have no effect.

Data Network Properties[edit]

These are all Data Network properties of this device.

Mode Values[edit]

These lists the values and meanings for the "Mode" property of the Active Vent.

Value Meaning
0 "Outward" mode (Pumping gas from the connected pipe network to the outside.)
1 "Inward" mode (Pumping gas from the outside to the connected pipe network.)
2 (Unknown)

Data Parameters[edit]

These are all parameters, that can be written to with a Logic Writer, Batch Writer, or Integrated Circuit (IC10). The outputs are listed in the order a Logic Writer's "VAR" setting cycles through them.

Parameter Name Data Type Description
Open Boolean Does not function.
Mode Integer Sets the Active Vent mode to the passed setting. (See Mode Values)
PressureExternal Float Sets the desired room pressure. The vent will stop pumping in order to not go "beyond" this value (where "beyond" has opposite meanings for Inward/Outward)
PressureInternal Float Does not function.
Lock Boolean Locks the Active Vent, when set to 1. Unlocks it, when set to 0.
Setting Float Does not function.
On Boolean Turns the Active Vent on, when set to 1. Turns it off, when set to 0.

Data Outputs[edit]

These are all parameters, that can be read with a Logic Reader or a Slot Reader. The outputs are listed in the order a Logic Reader's "VAR" setting cycles through them.

Output Name Data Type Description
Power Boolean Returns whether the Active Vent is receiving power and is turned on. (0 for no, 1 for yes)
Open Boolean Returns whether the Active Vent is open. (0 for no, 1 for yes) (Untested)
Mode Integer Returns the setting of the current mode of the Active Vent. (See Mode Values)
Error Boolean Returns whether the Active Vent is currently flashing an error. (0 for no, 1 for yes)
PressureExternal Float Returns the desired external pressure of the Active Vent.
PressureInternal Float Returns the desired internal pressure of the Active vent. (Untested)
Lock Boolean Returns whether the Active Vent is locked. (0 for no, 1 for yes)
Setting Float Returns a range from 0.0 to 100.0. (Assumption) Returns the percentage amount of pumping throughput of the Active Vent.
Maximum Integer Returns 100. (Assumption) Returns the maximum throughput percentage of the Active Vent.
Ratio Float Returns a range from 0.0 to 1.0. (Assumption) Returns the percentage amount of pumping throughput of the Active Vent.
On Boolean Returns whether the Active Vent is set to on. (0 for no, 1 for yes)
RequiredPower Integer Returns the current amount of power needed for the Active Vent.
