What types of temperature sensors can be used with the ATV600/ATV900 series drives.

Issue:  
What types of temperature sensors can be used with the ATV600/ATV900 series drives.

Product line:
ATV600 and ATV900 series drives.

Environment:
All models, All serial numbers.

Cause:
Information difficult to find in current literature.

Resolution:

The following options are available for thermal sensors on the ATV600 and ATV900 series drives:

Type of Thermal Probe Selection
[AIx Type] AIxt allows to select the type of thermal sensor(s) connected on the related Analog Input:
 [No] nO: no sensor
 [PTC Management] KtY: 1 to 6 PTC (in serial) is used
 [KTY] KtY: 1 KTY84 is used
 [PT100] 1Pt2: 1 PT100 connected with 2 wires is used
 [3PT100] 3Pt2: 3 PT100 connected with 2 wires are used
 [PT1000] 1Pt3: 1 PT1000 connected with 2 wires is used
 [3PT1000] 3Pt3: 3 PT1000 connected with 2 wires are used
 [PT100 in 3 wires] 1Pt23: 1 PT100 connected with 3 wires is used (AI4 & AI5 only)
 [3PT100 in 3 wires] 3Pt23: 3 PT100 connected with 3 wires are used (AI4 & AI5 only)
 [PT1000 in 3 wires] 1Pt33: 1 PT1000 connected with 3 wires is used (AI4 & AI5 only)
 [3PT1000 in 3 wires] 3Pt33: 3 PT1000 connected with 3 wires are used (AI4 & AI5 only)
2-wire thermal probes are supported on Analog Input 2 to Analog Input 5.
3-wire thermal probes are supported on Analog Input 4 and Analog Input 5. These inputs are available with
the I/O extension option module.
If the probe is far from the drive, the 3-wire connection is recommended as compared to a 2-wire
connection.
