Can I replace an ATV61 with an ATV71 drive?

Published date: 30 March 2020

Issue:
Can ATV71 be used as a replacement for an ATV61 drive?

Product Line:
ATV61, ATV71

Environment:
All drives below 125HP.

Cause:
The ATV61 is now obsolete, and customer wants to replace an ATV61 with an ATV71

Resolution:
Up to 125 horse power, it is possible for an ATV71 to replace an ATV61. The drives are physically same size.  The ATV71 must have the same horse power and voltage rating as the ATV61.  Above 125 horsepower, the physical sizes can be different, and if the difference in size is not an issue, then it is possible for an ATV71 to replace an ATV61. Refer to the attached ATV61 & 71 FRAME SIZES document for specific details. 
The ATV71 is not compatible with Apogee, Lonworks, or Bacnet communications. If you're using any of these communications with your ATV61, consider using an ATV630 as a replacement. 

Note: Saved configuration files on the ATV61 keypad cannot be transferred to the ATV71.
