## Scaling Function

This function performs the scale conversion on digital output values. The values are converted within a specified range
between a scaling upper limit value and scaling lower limit value.
The converted values are stored in "digital operation value".
Concept of scaling setting
Ex.
When the input range is set to -10 to +10V:
For the scaling lower limit value, set a value corresponding to the lower limit value of the input range (-8000).
For the scaling upper limit value, set a value corresponding to the upper limit value of the input range (+8000).
Calculating the scaling value
The scale conversion is based on the following formula. (In scale conversion, values are rounded to the nearest whole
number.)
■Current (0 to 20 mA, 4 to 20 mA), voltage (0 to 10 V, 0 to 5 V, 1 to 5 V)

Setting procedure
1.
Set "Scaling enable/disable setting" to "Enable".

2.
Set values for "Scaling upper limit value" and "Scaling lower limit value".
Item
Scaling upper limit value
Scaling lower limit value
• Even when the scaling upper limit value and the scaling lower limit value are set so that the change is
greater than the resolution, the max. resolution will not increase.
• If the relation between the values is scaling lower limit value > scaling upper limit value, the scale
conversion can be performed according to a negative slope.
• Set the scaling with the condition "Scaling upper limit value  Scaling lower limit value".
