How to Set a Strain Gage Factor Greater Than 2.20

For a strain gage factor greater than 2.20, please set the strain gage factor to 2.0 and use linear scaling. Refer to the example below.
For X > 2.20:
    - set gage factor of strain module to 2.00
    - set linear scaling constant A equal to a value of 2.0/X.
       For example, if X equals to 2.21, set scaling constant A to 2.00/2.21 or 0.905.

This method is also valid for the WE7245 module of the WE7000 series, for a gage factor greater than 2.30.
