Pneumatic Converter

 

a pneumatic automation device that is designed to change the amplitude, frequency, or shape of pneumatic signals or to convert the pressure of air or another gas into another physical quantity. Pneumatic converters are sometimes also called pneumatic amplifiers.

The design of a pneumatic converter depends on the converter’s purpose. For example, pneumoelectric and electro-pneumatic converters have standard designs and are part of the universal system of components for industrial pneumatic automation (USEPPA), but analog-digital or digital-analog and especially functional pneumatic converters have a more complex, multi-component design.
