Does the ATV930 series drive have the "Load Float" function available?

Current model drive needed with "Load Float" function.

Product Line:

All models

Unable to find documentation supporting this function.

Currently the ATV930 series drives does not have the function.  A corrective action request has been submitted and this function will be added in a future firmware update.  We do not have a release date available for this function.

"Load Float" requires encoder feedback from the motor.  The function is used in combination with a friction brake on a hoisting application.   If the friction brake is set and the drive senses the motor slipping / load dropping, it will apply power to the motor to generate full torque at zero speed to brake the load and prevent load slippage.  This function is intended to maintain a hoisted load in position using the motor in the event the friction brake fails.
