FlowPortSensorLevel information for an outside FlowPort 
This information is part of the Business Simulation Library (BSL). Please support this work and ► donate.
This component is typically used to build submodels where the information regarding the amount in a connected stock needs to be extracted from an outside FlowPort
.
For example, the FlowPortSensor is used inside the SourceOrSink component ExponentialGrowth, where the level information is needed for the stock as it will be multiplied with a fractional rate to obtain the actual rate for the component's flow into the stock.
