Tutorials/Observer stabilizer

An example of a stabilizer.

Observers are blocks that detect a change in the block ID of the space in front of them. This makes them useful for farms and other redstone contraptions. However, when using them with pistons, Observers are prone to creating pulsing circuits if not placed carefully. However, stabilizers can be used to 'cut' the circuit after one pulse, using the locking mechanic of redstone repeaters.

Construction[edit | edit source]

Prerequisites[edit | edit source]

Required materials:

  • 2 Redstone Repeaters
  • 4 Redstone dust (extra to connect the stabilizer to a circuit)

The stabilizer requires a 2x4x2 area to build, not counting the observer.

Building[edit | edit source]

Place a redstone repeater pointing out from the observer's output face, and a piece of redstone dust out of the repeater. Place a repeater on a 4-tick delay facing into the first repeater, and connect the first repeater to this one. Finally, connect the stabilizer to a redstone circuit.
