why 4 to 20 ma used at 0 set..

Answer / tang

Because we want to know the "life zero".
Life zero is a condition where there's a signal when the process is at 0%. For an example if we use 0mA instead of 4mA, we might don't know either the process is really 0% or the measuring unit is faulty(that will also indicate 0mA).
