Construction Kit (Pressure Regulator)[edit]


Pressure Regulator is used throughout Atmospherics networks to manage Pressure. Pressure Regulators comes in two variants: Standard and back-pressure regulators. They can be used to regulate the pressure between two pipe networks.

The maximum pressure that can be set is 20265 kPa, which is double the maximum pressure for most gas-related elements like Canisters.

Pressure regulator needs power to operate (100 W).

Pressure Regulator[edit]


The standard Pressure Regulator will pass through gases, in one direction, while the pressure on its output side is below the set value. It combines several functions:

  • Passive check valve: Gas is never allowed to pass "the wrong way", from output to input, even if the Regulator is switched off or unpowered.
  • Switched valve: Gas will not pass at all if the Regulator is switched off or unpowered. This is a similar function to the Pipe Digital Valve.
  • Regulator: Gas will only pass when the pressure at the output is below the Regulator's setting.
  • Compressor: While active, the Regulator will move all available gas from input to output, up to the set pressure. (Contrast with, for example, a Pipe Valve which simply equalizes pressure and then stops.)

Data Network Properties[edit]

Data Parameters[edit]

These are all parameters, that can be written to with a Logic Writer, Batch Writer, or Integrated Circuit (IC10). The outputs are listed in the order a Logic Writer's "VAR" setting cycles through them.

Parameter Name Data Type Description
Lock Boolean
Setting float
On Boolean

Data Outputs[edit]

These are all parameters, that can be read with a Logic Reader or a Slot Reader. The outputs are listed in the order a Logic Reader's "VAR" setting cycles through them.

Output Name Data Type Description
Power Boolean
Error Boolean
Lock Boolean
Setting float Contains the current threshold set on the regulator, in kPa
Maximum float Value of 20265kPa
Ratio Float The ratio between the Setting and the Maximum. As in Ratio = Setting / 20265
On Boolean
Requiredpower Integer In Watts. The Pressure Regulator require 100W of power to function

Back Pressure Regulator[edit]


The Back Pressure Regulator variant will only pass through gases when the pressure on its intake side exceeds the set value. In other words, the standard Regulator defaults open and closes when the output is overpressured, while the Back Pressure Regulator defaults closed and opens when the input is overpressured.

Like the standard Regulator, the Back Pressure Regulator also acts as a check valve, switched valve, and compressor (i.e., input gas will move even if the output is already a higher pressure).

Its low flow rate makes it not suitable for being used as an emergency dump valve.

Back Pressure Regulator has exactly the same Network properties as the Pressure Regulator.
