Usage

Detector Rails emit a Redstone signal when a Minecart passes over them. This makes them useful for activating anything that is redstone-powered. They are often used in traps.

Trivia

  • Detector Rails are used in a number of traps.
  • Detector Rails are often confused with Activator Rails.
  • If a Minecart with a Chest or a Hopper is on it, the Detector Rail will send a signal strength that shows how full that Container is.
