A pulley system used to reduce motion between the piston and the indicator of the steam engine. The indicator is attached by a string on the curved bottom triangle. As the piston moves, the string is pulled to record the pressure of the steam.

To monitor breathing gas pressure in the diving cylinder, a diving regulator usually has a high pressure hose leading to a contents gauge (also called pressure gauge). The port for this hose leaves the first-stage upstream of all pressure-reducing valves. The contents gauge is a pressure gauge measuring the gas pressure in the diving cylinder so the diver knows how much gas remains in the cylinder. It is also known as submersible pressure gauge or SPG.

A reducing lever for large engines to measure pressure of steam in the cylinder. The string to the indicator is pulled as the piston compresses the steam. Similarly, the string is pulled as the steam is expanded.

Reducing Lever for Piston and Indicator in Large Steam Engines

"It is placed horizontally with the pivot, B, resting on a support opposite the crosshead when in mid—position. If the pivot B is adjusted to the proper height and at the right distance from the cross head, the cord from the indicator may be attached to the pin E without any pulleys."—Derr, 1911

A pantograph used to reduce motion of the piston. At point D, a string is attached to the indicator, measuring pressure of steam in cylinder. The pantograph is attached to a solid surface on top. As the piston moves, the pantograph pulls the string.

"The indicator consists of a cylinder in which a piston is fitted, a spring, multiplying lever, and parallel motion for the pencil and cylinder or drum for the paper. The piston is fitted accurately to the cylinder and has a travel about one—half inch." —Derr, 1911

"If only one indicator is to be used for both ends of the cylinder, it may be connected by side pipes and a three way (pipe valve). By this method both diagrams are taken on the same card and with the loss but one revolution." —Derr, 1911
