Issue: 
What is 2 wire type on the Altivar drives? 

Product Line:
Altivar 61, Altivar 71, ATV 630, ATV 930, ATV 312, ATV 320, ATV 32, ATV 12 
 
Environment:
All serial numbers
 
Cause:
N/A
 
Resolution:
2 wire type will determine how the drive responds to the run command when the VFD is powered with the run command active, while in 2 wire control :  See examples below
[2 wire type] [Transition] (trn)
LEL [Level] (LEL): State 0 or 1 is taken into account for run (1) or stop (0).  The unit will run if run command is active on power up and the VFD is in 2 wire control  
trn    [Transition] (trn): A change of state (transition or edge) is necessary to initiate operation, in order to prevent accidental restarts after a break in the power supply.  The run must transition from low to high on power up. 
PFO [Fwd priority] (PFO): State 0 or 1 is taken into account for run or stop, but the “forward” input always takes priority over the “reverse” input.
