You can specify the transfer function between measured values and output analog values. You can select the analog output gain and offset used in the transfer function.

The factory default settings for the different analog output modes are displayed in the following table.

Table 1. Analog output scaling

You can configure output scaling or transfer function settings by changing the custom gain and offset. The basic measurement units are m/s and degrees. The physical output unit is A. The following formula shows the impact of gain and offset values on the produced output:

o = y0 + k×s
o Produced analog output (A)
s Measured wind speed or direction (in m/s or °)
k Selected gain value
y0 Selected offset value
