What does it mean when my sc100/sc200 asks active, hold, or transfer when I begin a sensor calibration?
Summary
sc Controller Outputs
Answer
All sc controllers will ask active, hold, or transfer when a calibration is started. This question is asking what you would like your 4-20 mA outputs to do during the calibration. If you choose active, the 4-20 output will continue to send the current sensor measure value during the calibration. If you choose hold, the outputs will hold the value the sensor was reading before the calibration was begun during the calibration. If you choose transfer, the outputs will be transferred to a certain mA transfer value programmed in the output setup menu during the calibration.
