Retransmission is configurable for:

  • PV1, PV2, Delta PV1/PV2
  • SP, Delta SP/PV
  • Output 1 or 2 percent output

100, B & C Series Controls offer analog linear Retransmission 0-20/4-20mA, 0-5/1-5VDC and 0-10VDC.

Retransmission is configurable for PV.


200 Series Controls offer analog linear Retransmission 0-20mA or 4-20mA.

Retransmission is configurable for PV
