Re: [foxboro] V8.4.3

I cheated and asked the developer. He wrote:

"I've checked the code and found that the PIDA's set point will track the 
measurement in Manual so long as Setpoint Tracking is set to 1 or 2 and there 
are no control errors."


That is, the setpoint tracks in MANUAL if and only if SPTTRK=1 or 2 and if 
there are no errors.

Hope this helps.

Tim, 

My vote is with your opinion.

If nothing special is configured when the controller is in manual and the 
measurement drifts away from setpoint, the setpoint will not follow. On return 
to Auto, the Integral action (no PBAND action) will drive the output to bring 
the meausrement back to setpoint. Obviously there are ways to configre 
different action, but this is the default.

 

Terry
