Can a smaller power converter unit in an S-Flex be used on a larger motor?

Issue:
Can a smaller power converter unit in an S-Flex be used on a larger motor?

Product Line:
ATV21 and ATV212

Environment:
All serial numbers for ATV21 and ATV212

Cause:
The drive to be optimized to meet required specifications

Resolution:
No, the drive needs to be sized for the appropriate horsepower or full load amps of the motor.  The S-Flex label indicates the rated HP and amps.  Using the S-Flex on a higher rated motor is a misapplication.
