Video: How is a faulted Altivar drive reset?

Issue:
How is a faulted Altivar drive reset?

Product Line:
Altivar ATV variable speed drives

Environment:
All

Cause:
Need to reset the fault status.

Resolution:
There are multiple ways to reset the fault, including a logic input assignment and communication network.  But an easy way to reset a fault is to remove power from L1L2L3.  Allow enough time for the display to go completely blank and then wait another 30seconds.  Apply power.  If the fault appears again, it means that the VFD has refaulted.
