TEDS Scaling Unlock

Zach Nelson

I've been working on creating a set of sensors within the TEDS system and I noticed that there isn't a way to unlock the sensitivity (Scaling) within the lockable/unlockable pick list. It would be great to be able to keep that unlocked when I create a sensor. The way our team uses sensors, they all have the same basic setup but rarely do we ever use the same exact sensor more than once. As a result we are always changing the sensitivity.

I noticed in the "AnalogSensors.dxb" there is a scaling section, if there was an add on like this "True" that would solve the issue my team is having with using this feature. Any help or guidance on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Dear Zach,

the sensitivity is locked because after it is written on TEDS we usually don't want someone messing with the setup and accidentally changing it for example. For now, it works as-is. 

Maybe one solution that could work for you can be using the "Scan TEDS only once" option under Settings:

Also, you can enable the "Rescan DSI/TEDS" channel action:

After this, you can Edit Sensor, change the sensitivity/scaling and then save sensor in the database:

If you connect a different sensor the can click the Rescan DSI/TEDS channel action and the TEDS will again be read.

Hopefully this helps.
