Do we have an option on the ATV61 to add the sequence timeout option that was used on the old ATV66 drives?

Issue:
Do we have an option on the ATV61 to add the sequence timeout option that was used on the old ATV66 drives?

Product Line:
Altivar ATV66 ATV61 ATV71

Environment:
All with bypass options enclosed

Cause:
Replacing an old ATV66 with a newer ATV61 however the old drive had Logic input 8 assigned as a sequence timeout input how do we set up the new ATV61 to accept this input.

Resolution:
The sequence timeout input allow for the drive to detect the status of the output contactor to see when it closes.  Example when the output contactor closes there was an AUX contact that will close and feed voltage back into LI8 assigned to sequence time out.
The ATV61 does not have an option to monitor sequence timeout so in this case the old wire will be capped off and not used on the new drive.
