A NOT Gate is a simple logic Gadget which outputs the opposite signal which it receives. The effects of a NOT Gate on an output can be applied to many items that have outputs by using a tweak called Invert Output.
NOT Gates should be used if you want to invert a specific condition, for example when a Player Sensor is sensing the condition "if player is in area," plugging it to NOT Gate will transform that condition to: "if player is not in area." Most logic Gadgets also include a built-in Invert Output function, which works the same as adding a NOT Gate to the normal Gadget output.
It can also be used to create a fast pulsing circuit, by wiring its output to its input, the NOT Gate will cycle On/Off very quickly. Connecting another output to something like a light will cause the light to flicker.
By inverting a NOT Gate the Gadget behaves similar to a Circuit Node, albeit with a larger footprint. One benefit of an inverted NOT Gate over a Circuit Node is the ability to change the colour of the device and the wires leading from it.
Electronics and Cable Visibility:
Digital Signal Behavior
If the digital input of the NOT Gate is zero, the output will be 1, and vice versa.
Analog Signal Behavior
The analog output of the NOT Gate is 100% minus the magnitude of the input. For example, an input of 100% would output 0%; an input of 30% would output 70%; an input of -40% would output 60%. The analog output of a NOT Gate is positive for all normally-attainable analog input values.
If the input is a super-normal signal, the NOT Gate will yield a negative output: the result of +100% minus the magnitude of the input signal.
Signal Ownership Behavior
The NOT Gate transfers signal ownership, whether inverted or not.
