Starter motor with engagement relay

The function of the starter is to start combustion engines. In FluidSIM, the starter motor and the starter solenoid are modeled internally.

Terminal 30 is connected directly to the supply voltage and terminal 31 is connected to ground. When voltage is applied to terminal 50, the starter solenoid relay picks up, the starter motor is connected to the engine, the contact for the primary starter current is closed, and the starter motor starts running.

In FluidSIM, only the rotation of the starter motor is animated.
