What is the maximum distance to wire speed potentiometer to an Altivar Drive?

Published date: 17 June 2020

Maximum distance recommended to wire a speed potentiometer to an Altivar Drive.

Product Line:
Altivar Drives

All serial numbers for Altivar Drives


There is no maximum distance on the drive to wire a speed potentiometer.
Longer the distances will result in more voltage drop.
One option would be to calculate the total voltage drop and scale the drive accordingly.
Another option would be to use an external power supply to overcome the long cable connection.
