Issue:
How do you put the ATV312 drive in local mode or remote mode?

Product Line:
Altivar ATV312

Environment:
All

Cause:
Quick set up for putting the ATV312 drive in local mode.

Resolution:
Please read the IMPORTANT NOTE below before proceeding.

From the default Remote Config rdY status, hold the MODE button for 3 seconds until the display shows LOC.  Release MODE and the 3 display LEDs will flash in sequence, top/middle/bottom, and rdY displayed.  This is Local Config.  The RUN / STOP buttons are active for start/stop control and the dial adjusts the speed reference.

To go back to Remote Config, hold the MODE button for 3 seconds until the display shows REM.  Release MODE and the 3 display LEDs will go off.  Be aware that Logic inputs and Reference inputs will go back to factory default.  The exception to this is if LAC=L3 and CHCF=SEP, Cd1 will stay at LOC.  Correct settings as required.
IMPORTANT NOTE: this feature only applies to firmware versions below version 5.1 IE56.  If your Drive's firmware version is above 5.1 IE56 you will have to reset your drive back to factory default to return it back to Remote mode.

Instructions to reset back to factory default (For versions 5.1IE56 and higher)
From the displayed rdY and 3LEDs flashing in sequence, press/hold ESC until the 3LEDs flash together, rdY still displayed.
Press ENTER, scroll to drC menu, ENTER, scroll to FCS, ENTER, scroll to InI.
Press/hold ENTER until display goes back to nO.
The VFD is now reset and will need to be reprogrammed.
