NOTE: This block was removed in Refined Storage 1.7. This block will return later in an addon mod.
A Reader has the ability to manage Reader / Writer channels on a network.
The Reader is a block that takes items, fluids, energy and / or a redstone signal. The data will be transmitted to the configured channel and can be read out with a Writer.
The Reader doesn't auto-extract any of the supported types (with an exception to redstone signals). You have to insert it manually.
