Issue:
Where can I read the temperature of an ATV61 or ATV71 series drive?

Product Line:
ATV61 and ATV71 series drives

Environment:
All models, All serial numbers

Cause:
Information not available in current literature.

Resolution:
The "Drive thermal state" can be read though the monitoring menu on the keypad.  This will not tell you the actual temperature of the drive, but it will tell you the percentage of temperature based on normal operating temperatore of the drive.   

Also, you can read this temperature via the serial communication netowork at logic addres 14114, 16#3722.  This is an unsigned integer between 1 and 118.  If the drive thermal state reaches 118%, the drive will shut down with a detected fault of "DRIVE OVERHEAT"
