The Priority Power Switch is an improved variant of the Power Switch. It can be used to set which sections (named Circuit Break Priority) [1] of the power grid should shut off first, if a power trip is about to occur. Additionally, it allows other Priority Power Switches on the grid to be toggled remotely.



 Priority Power Switch is unlocked via the Caterium Research chain in the MAM.png MAM using:
