Proportional adjustment unit

The proportional adjusting mechanism in FluidSIM is used for visual representation of a proportional valve as an actuator.

The model used in FluidSIM represents only the proportional solenoid of the electrical section. The position of the proportional solenoid is proportional to the current, and is represented visually. The maximum displacement is attained at the nominal current.
