Programming assist

Product Line:
ATV212, Altivar 212


Default setup for the ATV212 is a 0-10V speed reference.

The ATV212 drive comes with FnOd set for 1 (VIA reference).  Confirm this setting is correct in the drive. 
Change parameter F201 to 20. 

On the control board of the drive, find the dip switch SW100 (above the VIA and VIB terminals).  Slide the dip switch over to " I " for current. 
Connect the 4-20mA signal to terminals VIA (input) and CC (common).
