Can I use a different line voltage than what my drive is rated for?

Issue:
Can I use a different line voltage than what my drive is rated for? 
 
Product Line:
Altivar drives
 
Environment:
All models 
 
Cause:
None
 
Resolution:
Drives that are rated for a specific line voltage range should only be operated within that range.   Attempting to operate a drive outside this range will result in an under supply fault or over supply fault.
Line voltage tolerance is +10% and -15%.

For example: With a 460V drive the line voltage tolerance range would be 391VAC to 506VAC.
