What would cause the ATV71 drive to show an CLI status when running the drive without a motor connected?

Issue:
What would cause the ATV71 drive to show an CLI status when running the drive without a motor connected?

Product Line:
Alitivar ATV71

Environment:
All

Cause:
Needs to test the drive without running the motor, however they are getting CLI on the remote HMI as current limit status.

Resolution:
The factory default motor control type  is set to SVCV (sensorless flux vector control voltage).  If you want to run the ATV71 open circuit without the motor, then you will need to change the motor control type to V/F 2pts in 1.4 Motor Control menu. 
This will fix the drive from getting the CLI with no motor connected.
