The Fairchild 200XLR Pneumatic Volume Booster produces a pneumatic signal in a 1:1 ratio. It is ideally suited for systems that require input isolation or increased forward and exhaust flow capacities.
When signal pressure on the top of the signal Diaphragm creates a dow n ward force on the Diaphragm Assembly, the Supply Valve opens. Output pressure flows through the Outlet Port and the Aspirator Tube to the Control Chamber to create an upward force on the bottom of the Control Diaphragm. When the setpoint is reached, the downward force of the signal pressure that acts on the top of the Signal Diaphragm balances with the upward force of the output pressure that acts on the bottom of the Control Diaphragm.
When the output pressure increases above the signal pressure, the Diaphragm Assembly moves upward to close the Supply Valve and open the Exhaust Valve. Excess output pressure exhausts through the Exhaust Port until it reaches the setpoint.
