ATV212: Basic programming set up.

ATV212: What parameters have to be changed to make sure my drive will run the motor?

Product line:
Altivar ATV212 

All models, all serial numbers 

Basic Programming for the ATV212 drive.    

First set TYP to 2 for 60 hz motors  (doing this first will pre-set many of the other parameters).

Program the following drive parameters.
    0 = Terminals (most common)
    1 = HMI (keypad Run/Stop buttons)
    2 = Communications (Serial Communication)
FNOD - Frequency reference
    1 - Ref Source VIA (4-20mA or 0-10VDC)
    2 - Ref Source VIB (0-10VDC)
    3 - HMI reference (keypad)
    4 - Serial Com Ref
    5 - +/- Speed
AU1 - Auto Ramp Adapt (default is 1, ALWAYS change to 0 unless you understand what it does)
ACC - Acceleration in seconds
DEC - Deceleration in seconds
FH - Max Frequency
UL - Upper Limit Frequency (High Speed)
LL - Lower limit Frequency (Low Speed)
uL - Rated motor frequency
uLu - Rated motor Voltage
tHr - Motor thermal protection ( Full load amps of the motor, for overload protection)
F111 - Terminal F logic input assignment (Programmable input, default = 2; run forward)
F112 - Terminal R logic input assignment (Programmable input, default = 6; preset speed)
F113 - Terminal RES logic input assignment (Programmable input, default = 10; fault reset)
F415 - Rated motor current (Full Load amps of the motor)
F417 - Rated motor speed (Motor rpms)
F601 - Current Limit ( Full load amps of the motor multiplied by the service factor of the motor)
F201 thru F204 scaling the analog input for VIA (sets scale of analog input VIA)
F210 thru F213 scaling the analog input for VIB  (sets scale of analog input VIB)
F201=VIA speed ref level 1
F202=VIA output frequency level 1
F203= VIA speed ref level 2
F204= VIA output frequency level 2
F210=VIB speed ref level 1
F211=VIB output frequency level 1
F212= VIB speed ref level 2
F213= VIB output frequency level 2

There are many other settings and functions available.  
Note that S-Flex enclosed drives may have different default values than listed here since the programming is often modified to match the wiring in the enclosure.
