Issue:
 ATV320 drive with VW3A1111 HMI how do you set up the remote HMI knob as a HZ or RPM speed reference instead of the default percent?

Product line:
Altivar 320, ATV320

Environment:
all

Cause:
Using dial for speed reference.

Resolution:
The factory default is going to be a % percent of speed reference 0 to 100%.  If you need to change the reference to HZ or RPMs it can be changed. 

You have to use the remote HMI display VW3A1111 or VW3A1101 to set this up.  

Setting up the drive to display Hz using the remote HMI VW3A1111 keypad display
First, set up your access level to EXPERT
Programming:

-Main Menu  enter
- ITF enter
- Access level set to Expert level

Now setup your custom display in the programming

-Main Menu  enter
- ITF enter
- DCF  enter
- CUP  enter
- Parameter selection enter
- Display enter
-A1V1  image input (check this one)

ESC twice back to CUP
-choose custom selection enter
-A1V1 image input enter
____ User name will rename A1V1 to what ever you want
-------  Unit can be set to hz
--------Multiplier  set to 600
--------Divisor  set to 1000

This will change the speed reference knob to be 0 to 60hz. 
Done...
---------------------------------------------------------


RPM's option as speed reference
On the ATV320 drive if you want to show rpms 
use the same settings as above except  set up 

-A1V1 image input enter
____ User name will rename A1V1 to what ever you want
-------  Unit can be set to rpms
--------Multiplier  set to (36) or (18) ( see example below)
--------Divisor  set to 1

example is 100X(36)= 3600 rpms 
example is 100X (18)= 1800 rpms 
100 above is % of the A1V1 18 or 36 will need to be the multiplier 

This will change the HMI speed reference to 0 to 1800 or 3600 rpms
Done
