Hi Blake,

You might want to re-post your inquiry in the Live PLC Questions and Answers sub-forum, which is much more active. I'm sure you'll get some helpful responses. This Practice sub-forum is mostly used by people learning to use the forum software features.

Using the card TMC2AQ2C SoMachine Basic gives you the option to scale the raw value (BCD) in a min. and max., type in you card part number in SoMachine Help and search. There is a description on how to scale the analog value.
