When you set either the Temperature compensation mode or Pressure compensation mode to use measurement from an External sensor, you can configure the scale of the external sensor input in the Analog input 1 menu.

The Input mode and Input parameter selections are set automatically based on the external compensation parameter selection.

  1. In the Measurement menu, set either the pressure or temperature compensation mode as External to use input from a connected sensor. See Using compensation received from external temperature or pressure sensor.
    You can receive the compensation value from an external sensor for only one parameter (temperature or pressure) at a time.
  2. Store the setting with Save.
  3. In the Analog input 1 menu, enter the scaling for the temperature or pressure input from the external sensor.
    The external pressure instrument connected to MGP260 must output 4–20 mA and use absolute pressure units. The default range for the input is 1 … 1.6 bar(a). Note that the pressure unit used in Insight is hPa. The default input scale for the external pressure instrument is 0 … 1.6 bar(a), which corresponds to 0 … 1600 hPa.
  4. Store the setting with Save.
