Proportional element

The P element is a transfer element used in closed-loop control technology with a proportional response characteristic. The input signal/potential at input 1 is amplified by adjustable proportional-action coefficient Kp and read out as an output signal/potential at output 2. In the event of a proportional-action coefficient of less than 1, we no longer speak of amplification, but rather of attenuation. In order to keep circuit wiring as straightforward as possible, required earthing (0 V) and supply voltage are not led out as terminals, but rather wired internally.
