Yes.
On the front panel of the Model 6221 press CONFIG, then let go.
Now press DELTA.
Select I-HIGH, press ENTER.
Select the high value of current and press ENTER.
The opposite polarity of the current will be selected as the I-LOW current automatically.
Press EXIT.
Now run the Delta mode as usual.

From remote control send the following command to change the I-HIGH value to 10mA.
SOUR:DELT:HIGH 1e-2
That should do it.

Maybe I didn't state my question clearly.
My question is: for remote control during Delta Arm status, can I change the current without exiting Delt mode ?
