In temperature control applications a setpoint is the target value at which a controller attempts to maintain the process variable. This can be achieved by adjusting its control output power (the correcting variable). Controllers have a local setpoint and sometimes remote or other alternative setpoints. Setpoint values are limited by the instrument input range and any setpoint limits.
