Are the ATV61/71 high horsepower drives available without the DC choke?

Yes.  Add a D suffix to the drive part number.
For example:
ATV61HC22N4 includes a DC choke.
ATV61HC22N4D does not include a DC choke.

Note that if a DC choke is not used, a jumper wire, of sufficient current capacity, must  be installed between the PA and PO terminals.  A good rule of thumb is to use the same size wire that is on the DC choke for the jumper wire.   Also, if the DC choke is not used, a 5% line reactor ahead of the drive is Mandatory.  Failure to use a 5% line reactor ahead of the drive if no DC choke is present can result in damage to the drive that warranty does not cover.
