The ejector is used to dump small items to space. It only connects to small conveyor systems and, for this reason, cannot be used to get rid of larger Components. Due to the small size of ores, it can be put to good use by mining ships to transfer ores to a Collector or simply eject unwanted Stone into space. It is not suitable for salvage ships however, as they will frequently grind larger components.
The ejector is a cheap alternative to the Connector. It only uses a one block space. However, its only function it has is to take items from the grids inventory and eject them into space. It does this at a slow rate, and can only pull items capable of fitting through small conveyors. It shoots the items out at a rate of 1 m per second. The ejector can only pull a limited amount of items compared to its counterpart Connector.
- This is a decent alternative to use early on in the game if you're short on materials and space. The connector is still recommended later.
