Meaning of "activation range" on POS warp disruption/scrambling batteries?

Warp Disruption lists activation range of 300 and warp scramble range of 150.

What happens to a ship at 200km? Is he scrambled? If not then what's the significance of the "activation range" statistic? If he is scrambled at 200km then what's the significance of the "warp scramble range" statistic? Are different strengths applied at different ranges here? I don't get it...

Im assuming that it means the maximum range of the module is 300km/150km, and that it will attack anything within that range aswell.

This one's a bit over the edge guys.

Locked for breaking... well, pretty much all the rules.

But if it "attempts" to scramble something at 200km but fails until the vessel is within 150, what's the point? I guess I'm wondering why "activation range" and "warp scramble range" are not the same value for this module. The fact that the values are different has me wondering if I mis-understand how they work.

It still has to target you to actually scram you. Activation just means it's gonna get a lock on you and wait until it can use it.
