I want to increase (repeat) the signal of redstone, as the signal can only travel for 15 blocks without repeat, however using repeaters is not the solution, as repeaters have 1 tick of delay, which is troubling for some creations. The only other solution I saw was to make a double NOT gate with redstone torches, which still caused delay on the repeated side.

  • Another solution is to run the redstone into a block with a torch on the other side, then again further down the line.

  • @WillB. I tried that, but torches seem to have delay of about 0.5 tick, because when I did that, I did get delay

For repeating a redstone signal without delay, you should build an instant repeater as such:

Instant repeater (Both pistons are sticky pistons)

  • +1, anyway, won't the piston's push time play a role in the delay?

  • @JohnSmith It shouldn't; you can see an explanation of it here.

  • I see.... Accepted the answer, thx. However not (yet) a problem, when the input signal activates and deactivates quickly, the repeater stays active
