Is it possible to use the analog output for an Altivar 58 as a 0-10 VDC signal?

The analog output (AO1) for the ATV58 is a 0-20 mA or 4-20 mA signal. It is not a voltage output.  This is also true using the ATV58 Analog I/O Extension Card, VW3A58201U and the Altivar 58 Digital I/O Extension Card. To convert a 0-20 mA signal to 0-10 VDC use a 500 Ohm resistor across the COM and the analog output terminal.

The analog outputs on the ATV58 General Purpose Option Card VW3A58253 can be configured as 0-10 VDC. There is also a -10 to +10 VDC output on that option card.
