Abstract : A fluidic flow or pressure regulator which utilizes a linear and a non-linear resistance arranged in parallel supplying control passages to change the direction of a jet as a function of the pressure of an unregulated fluid source. An output means is provided which can supply fluid having pressure which is a desired function of the unregulated pressure, including a constant pressure. One embodiment forms the variable direction jet solely from the two control passages while another embodiment uses the control passages to change the direction of a power jet. (Author)
