German term or phrase: Imin. / Imax.
"An dem Analogausgang wird der Strom ausgegeben, der dem Strom vom Messwertgeber entspricht, solange dieser im Bereich von Imin = 1,5 mA bis Imax = 22,5 mA liegt."

How would you render Imin and Imax.
Leave them as is? Or?

agree  Steffen Walter: although I is NOT "input" BUT "(current) intensity" - see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_current // Comment re. subscripts: Klaus is perfectly right, yet the KudoZ question form does not allow for making this visible (I've just tried).

  -> Thanks Steffen, I learn something new here every day

agree  Ken Cox: with Languageman: current, not input (that would be 'E' in German). Properly speaking, 'min' & 'max' should be subscripts.
10 mins

neutral  AnjaR: stimme Dir zu, dass es nicht übersetzt wird, ist aber nicht input, sonder I steht für die Stromstärke
13 mins

agree  jccantrell: Agree with 'current' and subscript, but if the original does not use subscripts, I would not either.
28 mins

agree  Klaus Herrmann: The subscript should have been there in German to begin with. It's not an Imax movie theater.

agree  Arthur Allmendinger: max. and min. current

agree  Johannes Gleim: Stimme meinen Vorrednern voll zu. "I" ist Kurzzeichen für Strom und "min." und "max." werder tiefgestellt.
6 hrs

agree  Robin Thomson: No need to change anything - exactly the same in English. As all say above: maximum and minimum permissible current values.
