What Are the Uses of Redstone Repeater In Minecraft?

Redstone Repeaters work as a repeater that prolongs the Redstone Signals. As Redstone goes further, the pulses become weaker until they eventually die but a Repeater renews the signals as they go to the lamp. They are actually transmitters transferring the Redstone signals into the lamp.

A Redstone Repeater has a front and back with an arrow on top pointing towards the front. The distance between two torches defines the delay of Redstone Signals. The bright red color torches shows that it is on and dark red indicates no output signals.

Benefits of Redstone Repeaters

Redstone Repeaters can be used to add delay to Redstone Signals. You can add ticks to your Repeater that will delay the pulse by 0.05 seconds. Add a Block to a Repeater and this will power the opaque block and make it strongly powered. They can power adjacent Redstone dust.

Redstone Repeaters are also used to form lines by modifying them turning on only the Repeaters facing the incoming pulses directly and turning off the side Repeaters. 

A Redstone repeater can be powered by a powered Redstone block, lever or a Redstone torch. It can also be powered by another Redstone repeater or a powered Redstone dust.
