In  ARK: Survival Evolved the Electrical Cable Intersection is used to supply devices with Electricity.

This cable can be used in a power grid to connect a  Generator to an  Electrical Outlet, which can power nearby electrical devices.

The Intersection can connect to up to four other cables or outlets, making it possible to distribute electricity from one generator to multiple devices.


The Electrical Cable Intersection can snap to any non-flexible Electrical Cable (Inclined Intersection, Straight, Vertical). Non-snapped Electrical Cables can be connected with a Flexible Electrical Cable.
