It took me a long time to figure out that connecting a wire to a belt hooked it to the circuit network-- Now I'm wondering if there is a way to control it from a value from the logistics network.

I didn't see a "Connect to logistics network" dialog after connecting a wire to a transport belt so I'm guessing that if it's possible there is some additional trickery.

Not directly, belts can't connect to the logistics network by themselves.

What you could do is put down a roboport and use the circuit network.

A roboport connected to the circuit network has two options:

  • Emit the items in the logistics network (default)
  • Emit statistics about bots in the logistics network

Connect a roboport to a belt and you can use regular circuit network conditions to enable/disable the belt as needed.
