Spawn belt

Spawn a fully compressed belt of any item, configurable by chest or circuit network.

With chest

Place a chest behind the spawn belt and it will spawn the item type that was last found in the first slot of the chest

With circuit network

Connect the spawn belt using a red or green wire and send a signal to it, it will spawn the item with the highest signal count, regardless of green/red color.

Measure throughput

Placing a chest or a constant combinator behind the void belt will automatically fill it with the contents that the belt cleared in the last second, showing a rough throughput per second.
