How many reference channels are available on the ATV61 / ATV71 drives?

Issue:
How many reference channels are available on the ATV61 / ATV71 drives?

Product Line:
ATV61 ATV71

Environment:
All

Cause:
Multiple speed references needed

Resolution:
For reference switching functions, there are 3 reference channels and 2 reference switches available. 
The Command menu has Reference 1 channel, Reference 2 switching and Reference 2 channel.
The Application Function menu / Reference Switching sub-menu has Reference 1B switching and Reference 1B channel.

Other references to consider:
The Communication menu / Forced Local sub-menu has Forced Local Assignment and Forced Local Reference. This acts as another reference switch and reference channel, but will override most other control features of the VFD.  The Command channel will also be forced to one similar to the Reference channel.
The Command menu has Fx key assignments that can be set to T/K.  This assigns the Fx key to switch both Command and Reference channels to the display terminal. This will also override most other control features.
