How do you scale the FM analog output on an ATV21 drive to show motor current?

FM dip switch must be set to (I) for mA output or (V) for voltage output.  You will need a voltage or current Fluke meter to perform this scale.  Connect your meter to FM and cc,  in the ATV21 programming go to F692  set to 0 for 0mA or 0V, if you want 4mA set to 20%.  Set FNSL to 17 if FM is used to measure anything other than output current.  Set FNSL to 15 for measuring output current at 100% signal (or 16 if output current at 50% signal).  Then go to FN parameter and select enter, it shows 100% on the display.  Using the up and down buttons on the drive you can adjust your upper limit until you read 10V or 20mA  on your meter depending on what you want.  After your meter shows 20mA or 10V  press the enter button,  then go to FNSL again and set  it to the number 1
