A example strategy written in PAC Control Basic R8.2f that demonstrates how to scale and linearize values. This example strategy uses subroutines to perform most calculations.

This example strategy is useful if you are using a SNAP-AIRTD module with an unsupported probe (a probe that is not 100-ohm platinum or, for the SNAP-AIRTD-10, 10-ohm copper). It is also helpful for converting resistance to temperature when you are using a thermistor with a SNAP-AIR40K module.

Here are some other situations where linearization is typically required:

* Calculating tank volume
* Using non-linear transducers (such as thermocouples or very high-temperature [non-linear] devices)
* Receiving data from a third-party serial device
* Linearizing non-linear mechanical measurements
