The detector frame can be used to supply power much like a power frame. The detector frame however, only supplies power when it detects a certain object. The detector frame has three detecting settings:

1) Detect anything

2) Detect allies

3) Detect enemies


It could be used for a ship to be powered only when a builder bot is docked. It could be activated upon seeing enemies, so it would only turn on when an enemy is near. The practical application of power upon detection is as limitless as using the power frame.

The picture to the right shows the effects of settings 1 and 2. Notice that the detection field turns green and the hardpoints are now powered.


To build a detector frame you need 100 yellow ores and 200 pink ores.
