Zone setting symmetry with R setting boundaries

3. Recommendation: define limits for R setting of zones

The R setting should not be several times larger or smaller than the corresponding X setting (zone symmetry). This is in
particular valid for the underreaching zone 1 settings. In practice a range of between 0.8 to 2.5 times the X setting provides
good results for zone 1. (7SA522 manual 11.2009, pages 88-93)
