Click PLC Analog Input Non-Linear Scaling

The Click PLC has automatic linear scaling for the analog inputs and outputs. What if the analog input or output is not linear? How do you handle this in the PLC? Look at the following tank. We can measure the height, which is linear, but the volume will not because of the shape of the tank.
Click PLC Analog Input Non-Linear ScalingWe will look at an application to determine the volume in this tank. This will be based on the height of the liquid in the tank. We will then scale this non-linear volume of the tank to display the actual volume. Let’s get started.
