This factory produces the following resources per cycle:

Name Quantity Volume Avg. Price Illegal? Dangerous?
Neutron Accelerator 1 15 112,915 No No
Proton Accelerator 1 15 112,915 No No
Electron Accelerator 1 12 112,915 No No

Production Materials[ | ]

These factories require the following resources to complete a cycle:

Name Quantity Volume Avg. Price Sold By Illegal? Dangerous?
Turbine 3 7.5 12,479 Turbine Factory No No
Plasma Cell 3 0.25 150 Plasma Cell Factory No No
Fusion Generator 3 2.5 35,468 Fusion Generator Factory No No
Energy Tube 6 1.5 2,761 Energy Tube Factory No No
High Pressure Tube 6 2 1,981 High Pressure Tube Factory No No
Conductor 15 0.15 152 Conductor Factory No No
Gauss Rail 9 2 7,437 Gauss Rail Factory No No

It needs 200690 production capacity to achieve minimum cycle duration of 15 second. Any extra production capacity is wasted.

Profitability[ | ]

This station's profitability is an average of 96,789 credits per cycle and its return-on-investment per cycle is 0.000222 credits.

The Accelerator has the highest profit per cycle of any factory in the base game (as of 1.3.6). Due to its high cost, its ROI/cycle is not particularly high, being beaten by several other High-Tech factories and even a few Advanced factories. This makes it a poor choice for anyone except for players in the late-game who have ample resources. In its best performance (fully-upgraded with enough production to reach the 15 second cycle minimum, and no wasted time due to missing input goods or an excess of output products), it can generate 2,322,936 credits per minute of income. Reaching this point will require a large investment and a great deal of support in the form of supply-chain freighters and a vast network of cooperating stations, including several Research Stations to consume its product.
