The Model 21 Adjustable Ratio pneumatic relay has a signal chamber lever arm, whereby the ratio of output pressure to signal pressure is infinitely adjustable. The adjustment range permits signal amplification of 1:30 or signal reduction of 30:1 by rotation of the ratio adjustment knob which moves the fulcrum. . Output pressure is a function of signal pressure times the ratio of lever arm lengths on either side of the fulcrum. Bias may be introduced by means of the set screws. The Model 21D is available with both input and output adjustable bias.
