How is OTR parameter (motor torque) expressed as a value via serial communication on the ATV32 drive?

Issue:
How is OTR parameter (motor torque) expressed as a value via serial communication on the ATV32 drive?

Product Line:
ATV32 series drives.

Environment:
All models, All serial numbers.

Cause:
OTR in the drive is displayed as 0 to 300% but 0-300 is not read from the communication registers, the number is different.  How do these correlate?

Resolution:
Motor torque, OTR, is displayed by the drive as percentage of nominal motor torque as a value between 0% and 300%.
When reading motor torque over the network from register 3205, it will be displayed as a value between 0 and 8192.  0 = 0% torque, 8192 = 300% torque.   When the motor is running at nominal torque, reading parameter 3205 will return the number 2731.
