What is the scale of the ATV630 analog output AQ1 when assigned as motor current?

Issue:
What is the scale of the ATV630 analog output AQ1 when assigned as motor current?

Product Line:
Altivar Process ATV630 ATV650 ATV930 ATV950

Environment:
All

Cause:
Need to know how the analog output correlates to measured motor amps.

Resolution:
The default scale is 0 - 2 times drive current rating (0-200%)
The current value can be found in the installation manual and on the drive label.

Example:
ATV630D55N4 is rated 106A continuous output.
AQ1 assigned as 4-20mA output for motor current.
0mA = 0amps
20mA = 112A (2 X 106 = 112)

The scaling can be changed with parameters ASL1 and ASH1.  See the programming manual for details.
