what does “Setpoint generator” mean?

In: Technology

I’m assuming context here, as you gave none:

A setpoint generator is part of a control or regulation circuit (electronic or mechanical) by which the point of control can be set, either programmed or physically by a user.

For example, the dial control on a thermostat to control the temperature is a setpoint generator.
