Issue:
How do you configure the ATV71 drive to allow the F4 function key to be terminal keypad mode?

Product Line:
ATV61 and ATV71

Environment:
All serial numbers

Cause:
Need to control drive locally

Resolution:
For the ATV61, the keypad F4 key is assigned to T/K as factory default.  Verify by looking in the keypad display, just above the F4 key.  Press F4 to toggle between Local and Remote modes.  The active mode is in the display upper right corner: LOC or REM.
If the F4 key is not assigned to T/K, then follow the procedure for an ATV71, below. 

For the ATV71, the keypad F4 key needs to be assigned to T/K.
Under the MAIN MENU, select DRIVE MENU and then 1.6 COMMAND.
Scroll down and select F4 Key Assignment and set it to T/K.
Now pressing the F4 key will toggle between Local and Remote modes.  The active mode can be verified in 1.2 MONITORING.
