The Small Conveyor block is a smaller, cheaper version of the Conveyor Junction block. It functions the same in that it allows the transfer of items from one inventory to another through conveyor ports on all sides. It also has no control panel or interface in which to interact with.
The Conveyor block automatically allows items to be passed through it once it is finished being built, and the grid (ship/station) it is being placed on has power. Conveyors are also capable of transferring Oxygen and Hydrogen.
While the small ship conveyor blocks are able to transfer items the same way as its larger counterparts, it has some limitations. Not all items are able to pass through the small conveyors as they are too large.
- Small Conveyor blocks and large conveyors cannot directly connect with each other. The only way is to use a block with both large and small conveyor ports, such as a Medium Cargo Container or a Conveyor Junction, as the junction point between them.
- All conveyors require power to function. However, interestingly enough the conveyor blocks do not have any power consumption. So while it does need power to pass items through it, it won't actually drain any power from the grid.
- Update 01.110 - Conveyor blocks consume noticeable amounts of processing power, and therefore causing a lot of in-game lag.
