If the process has fast step changes, linear (fast) damping gives shorter settling time.

In the linear damping, the output is the running average of the signal during the damping time. After a step change the signal rises linearly and reaches the final value after the damping time. The linear damping gives the best trade-off between random noise suppression and step change response time.

Select Damping time to set the damping time.

For similar noise suppression a longer damping time has to be specified than for the exponential damping.
