Shared Variable - Validate Scale

Status: New


So I have a cRIO with a 9203 mA input module. I also have sensors etc that are 4-20mA. So when it came to using the scaling feature of the shared variable as below see if you can spot the bug. 


So I was thinking in mA from sensor to mA input to the 9203 which is a mA module - but the RAW scale is in Amps! (Which is obvious once your colleague points it out!) Consequently I wasn't seeing any signal readings from the cRIO as 20mA << 4A. 


Since there is an error if you get Full and Zero around the wrong way... can there also be an error or warning if its outside the range of the module?
