- Has quick disconect: air intake, fuel in, electricity in, data out, and data in

- Has quick disconnect hydraulic in and out

- All connections are in standardized positions

Used For

- the [[Advanced Powercube Construction Set]

- 1x Data In

Quick Disconnect Inserting Ports

- Insert into the array from the powercube

- 1x Hydraulic Fluid Out

- 1x Oil Out

- 1x Exhaust Out

- 1x DC Electricity Out

- 1x AC Electricity Out

- ix Data Out

Locking Mechanism

- Pins possibly? (the powercube could have holes and this could insert pins into it using a mechanism
