This type defines control which is used e.g. for an actuator, positioner.

ABJ683#001 defines parameter indicating the current output value of the block (READBACK_VALUE).

Setpoint: ABN607#001 defines set point for a valve position.

OperatingDirection: ABD740#002 defines output change to a given input signal. For mapping rules see 8.2.4.

ActuatorType: ABD742#002 defines classification of a positioner according to the actuator for which it can be used. For mapping rules see 8.2.4.
