German term or phrase: beruhigt
Context: Rauchanlage
Default Werte der XYZ Steuerung
...
mit diesem Wert werden die eingelesenen Fuehlerwerte gefiltert. Die Filterrate ist definiert von 0 (ohne Filter) bis 4 (hoch).
Eine hohe Filterrate beruhigt den Istwert, folgt dem eigentlichen Signal aber nur verzoegert

can anyone help me with this last sentence? My translation of it sounds quite awkward...

Sincere thanks in advance!

mitigates the actual value
Explanation:
A high filtering rate mitigates the actual value. It obeys the actual signal, but at a delayed rate. Elisa, feel free to ignore this. I don't really know enough about your subject, but this seems to me to reflect the concept.

dampens


Explanation:
A high filter cycle dampens the instantaneous value, but responds to the actual signal at a delayed rate only.


I'm sure your version is less awkward.
