How do I configure a relay on the ATV600/900 series drives to indicate when the motor is powered?

Issue: 
R2 relay is programmed for "Drive Running" but still indicates the motor is running when the drive is in sleep mode.

Product Line:
ATV600 / ATV900 series drives.

Environment:
All models, All serial numbers.

Cause:
"Drive Run" function still indicates the motor is running when the drive is in Sleep mode.  Need a function that indicates when the motor is turning and not just when the drive is in run mode.

Resolution:
Advised setting R2 to "I Present".  In this mode, the R2 relay will only close when there is current draw by the motor.
