    Siemens controls

    Is it possible to use other controllers for Siemens devices like actuators for valves and dampers if so what brand and is it difficult to configure them to work together?

    Yes you can use Siemens devices with other controls. I am currently on a site that has them hooked to JCI DX controllers. Not sure how or why that happened but they work fine. The control signals are the same. There are some older devices that took 15 VDC inputs but those were phased out for the most part.

    I believe the post was about using a Siemens controller. They use a Slope and Intercept formula to determine the output signal range and the displayed output range on the controller. Basically just algebra, but is how Siemens configures their controllers. If you are using Siemens actuators or valves with a different controller just use whatever setup that controller uses.
