PID module has gone to "control-point"
- I/NET DDC
The PID may have gone to "Control Point" due to unforeseen circumstances and is causing a problem. "Control Point" can also be used intentionally as a control strategy.
- If the Setpoint’s value crosses above or below the high or low input limits as populated in the PID editor, this will force the PID to go to control-point.
- If the process variable should reach the low or input sense limits as entered in the Resident I/O editor, the PID will go to control-point.
- If either the Setpoint or Process variable should go to "OLD" status, the PID will go to control-point until the "OLD" flag goes away.
- If the user should change any variable within the PID, when exiting the PID editor, the PID will go to control-point until the next scan of the module. For more information on this subject refer to Tech Tip G062.
