What is the temperature range an EMU-1 gauge input can be used to measure?
This temperature range is dependent on what gauge is defined by the Toolkit for that input. An EMU-1 “Gauge” input set to measure “Temperature” is capable of measuring temperatures outside of the defined gauge range. For example, selecting a “40 to 120 degrees C” gauge can actually allow the EMU-1 to report temperatures all the way down to below 0 degrees C and above 140 degrees C. This is because the EMU-1 calibration curve for the sender/gauge has been extended beyond the gauge display range. However, the accuracy of the calibration curve outside of the normal gauge display range is usually compromised.
