Can I use 2 potentiometers in parallel to control the speed of the drive from 2 different locations?

Issue:
Can I use 2 potentiometers in parallel to control the speed of the drive from 2 different locations?

Product Line:
All Altivar drive products.

Environment:
All models, All serial numbers

Cause:
Customer needs to be able to control the speed of the drive from 2 different locations at the same time.

Resolution:
No, this is not possible by using parallel potentiometers.  The drive will only follow a single speed reference at any given time.  The drive can be switched between two different potentimeters via a logic input but it can not follow two different potentiometers at once.
