Flight simulators that use air cylinders to control force feedback on the simulator’s control yoke can use a Proportion-Air electro-pneumatic pressure regulator to control the force feedback to the operator using a computer or PLC. It is important for flight simulator controls to provide “real world” feedback to the operator.
Proportion-Air can use electronic pressure regulators, such as MM1s, to control force on the cylinders in real-time. Less pressure allows for softer feedback and more pressure allows for more rigid feedback. Proportion-Air’s high forward and relief flow products allows for rapid changes in pressure when needed to simulate different flying situations. The standard analog monitor output of the pressure regulator can be used for data acquisition back to the controller.
