If connected to a Conveyor Network via one of the inventory access points, the Oxygen Generator can automatically pull in Ice from attached inventories to process. Oxygen and hydrogen generated will travel through the conveyor system, and will be stored in an Oxygen Tank or Hydrogen Tank. If there are no tanks with vacancy in the conveyor network, the Oxygen Generator will not process Ice.
The oxygen generator can be used to refill Oxygen and Hydrogen Bottles by placing empty or partly filled bottles into the O2 generators inventory and either clicking "Refill bottles" or activating the control panel option "Auto-Refill".
|Oxygen Generator Status|
| Oxygen Generator has Ice and is processing it into gas,|
while there is still free capacity in the tanks it has access to.
| Oxygen Generator has Ice in its inventory but, is unable to process it |
since all the accessible and enabled tanks are completely full.
| Oxygen Generator is powered and is On,|
but has no Ice in its inventory cannot work.
|Oxygen Generator is either unpowered or deactivated.|
Oxygen and Hydrogen are produced at a 1:1 ratio. In addition, the processing only produces one output. Either Oxygen or Hydrogen, but not both. Giving the H2/O2 Generator access to both oxygen and hydrogen tanks will merely split the output of the generator into using 50% of the available ice for Oxygen and 50% of the available ice for Hydrogen.
|Oxygen generation rate - Large||500 L/s|
|Oxygen generation rate - Small||100 L/s|
|Ice to oxygen ratio - Large||1 kg Ice = 10 L gas|
|Ice to oxygen ratio - Small||1 kg Ice = 10 L gas|
- Sometimes it may be wise to disable your oxygen generator when you don't need it. This is because it can generate excess amounts into your oxygen tanks. If your oxygen tanks are full, you cannot depressurize a room as there is no where for the oxygen to go.
