Used with some SCALING TYPES. Driver dependent. Two most common are:
Linear scale MX+B
This will convert input using the classic equation for a line (i.e. linear input) where: OUTPUT = M * INPUT + B
SCALING FACTOR 1 = M, the slope of the line.
SCALING FACTOR 2 = B, the intercept of the line with the x -axis.
Scale Defined Input H/L to Span
This will convert values between INPUT LOW and INPUT HIGH to specified Low and High Span (SPAN LOW and SPAN HIGH). This assumes the input is a value between INPUT LOW and INPUT HIGH.
OUTPUT = (SPANHI - SPANLO) / (INHI - INLO) * (INPUT - INLO) + SPANLO
SCALING FACTOR 1 = INPUT HIGH.
SCALING FACTOR 2 = INPUT LOW.
