Gold cables are Tier 2 cable type. They suffer higher distance-related energy losses than copper cables, but are able to carry Medium Voltage, up to 128 EU/s. Gold cables have 2 different levels of insulation, with the 2x insulation providing smaller energy losses per tile and less shock damage from high voltage.
