How to set up the ATV12 to cause R1 to close to verify the motor is running?

Customer needs an output contact to indicate that his Altivar 12 drive controller is turning the motor.

Product line:
Altivar 12, ATV12
All models, all serial numbers

The Altivar 12 has an NO/NC programmable contact on terminals R1A-R1B-R1C.  (NO is R1A to R1C, NC is R1B to R1C).  To setup R1 to indicate the drive is running you need to assign this function to the R1 relay.

Go to the following menu:
COnF > FULL > I_O- > r1.  Change this parameter to rUn
When the drive is providing voltage to the motor, the R1A-R1C contact will be closed.
