The probe sets the analog output channel into a defined error level instead of the measured result in two situations:

  • Probe detects a measurement malfunction. This means an actual measurement problem, such as sensor damage or unsuitable environmental conditions.
  • Measured value(s) are significantly outside the scaled output range.

The default error level depends on the output type:

Output Default Error Level
0 ... 20 mA 23 mA
4 ... 20 mA 2 mA
0 ... 5 V 0 V
0 ... 10 V 0 V

The probe resumes normal operation of the analog output when the cause of the error state is removed.
