Issue
Can you remotely mount the DC Choke on ATV61 and ATV71 high horsepower
 
Product Line
All ATV61 and ATV71

Environment
All

Cause
Not enough space in enclosure for drive and choke

Resolution:  
Per  Product Engineers it is recommended to go with the D version of the drive and a Line Reactor. With the choke, installing with longer cables will cause higher voltage losses, more heat, and potentially higher voltage swings on the buss.  You also have to properly protect the cables, preventing anyone from coming into contact with them, since if this was a 460v application you would have close to 700v DC going across those cables.
