Logic gates are an advanced skill in redstone circuitry. All logic gates involve at least one input and an output that turns on in some state and off in others. They always output a signal strength of 15.

Summary of types[edit]

There are many types of logic gates

2 inputs[edit]

Many logic gates have 2 inputs.

Type Summary Both on works? Both off works? A, but not B works? B, but not A works? Delay (in seconds)
And Both must be on. Yes No No No 0.2
Nand Both must be off. No Yes No No 0.1
But not A, but not B, must be on. No No Yes No
Or At least one must be on. Yes No Yes No 0.1
Nor At least one must be off. No Yes Yes Yes 0.1
Implies B must be on if A is. Yes Yes No Yes 0.1
Xor One or the other, but not both, must be on. No No Yes Yes 0.15
Nxor Both or neither must be on. Yes Yes No No 0.25

1 input[edit]

The simplest logic gates only have one input. These logic gates will have a 1 tick (0.1 second) delay.

Not gate[edit]

A not gate reverses the presence of a redstone signal, so if the input is on, the output will be off.

Ot gate[edit]

An ot gate maintains the presence of a redstone signal. This means that the output will match the input, but the signal strength will be 15.
