The Speed Module (previously know as the Productivity Upgrade Module) is a 2x1x1 block that can be placed on an Assembler or a Refinery to make its Assembling/Refining speed increase. Each module will increase the speed of ore/component production, and will also increase power consumption up to a maximum of 2.8 MW.
The Speed Module can only function if placed on a Refinery's or Assembler's attachment point, which increases the speed of Assembling/Refining. When a Speed module is placed on every possible attachment point it increases the productivity (which is the speed of Refining/Assembling) by 400%, which is a total of 500%. The Speed module must be fully placed onto an Assembler/Refinery for it to function properly, as a single upgrade module may be placed on only one upgrade port, this does halve the efficacy of the modules, so instead of a 100% bonus to productivity, you receive only a 50% bonus.
Total Productivity = 100% + 50% x Attachment points connected to upgrade module, each module provides 2. (100% + 50% * SpeedAttachments) Power Consumption = --------------------------------------- (1.2228445^PowerEfficiencyAttachments)
|No. of Modules||Total Productivity||Max Power Consumption [kW]|
- To maximize Productivity is would take 16 motors, 240 Computers, 80 Small Steel Tubes, 160 Construction Components, and 400 Steel Plates in order get 300% Productivity.
