Here's what I'm trying to do:
I have a nuclear reactor feeding an MFSU. What I want to do is to send a shutoff signal to the reactor when the MFSU is full. I know how to accomplish that much - an EU detector cable and a NOT gate does the trick.
BUT, here's the part I can't figure out yet: When the MFSU goes below maximum, I want that signal to stop so the reactor turns back on and fills it again. Of course, the EU detetector and gate won't accomplish that, because the reactor is off and thus no current is flowing through the detector.
The goal is to reduce fuel wastage when the MFSU does not need it. I don't want to just redstone the MFSU and then put a detector cable on it, because I do want things down the line to be able to use the MFSU before it's full (otherwise, there'd be no purpose th this whole exercise). Is there a way to get the MFSU to turn off that redstone signal to the reactor?
I'm feeling like I'm missing something obvious - but I'm neither a programmer nor an electrician, so all these Boolean gates are kind of arcane to me.
