I need to control and industrial water-heater that has a control input of 4-20mA and I was wondering if there is a way to use a UE9-Pro (or any other LJ) to do this.


I know that I can use a CurrentShunt to convert a 4-20mA signal so that the LJ reads at as 0-5v, but is there a way for the LJ to output 4-20mA natively or some way to convert the 0-5v (or 0-10v when using a TickDAC) output to 4-20mA?
