Video: How can an ATV630/ATV930 Process Drive be programmed to run using local keypad control?

Published date: 06 September 2020

Can I program an ATV630/ATV930 process drive to run using local control?

Product Line:
ATV630, ATV930, Altivar Process



Programming Sequence

From the Main Menu: 
  1. Scroll down (slide your finger around the wheel clockwise) to Menu 5 Complete Settings and press OK
  2. Then scroll down to Menu 5.5 Command and Reference, press OK, and verify/modify the following parameters:
  • config ref freq1= Ref.Freq-Rmt.Term               (sets the keypad to be your speed control)
  • control mode=  Separate                            (your start/stop command and speed reference are coming from different sources)
  • Command switching= Command channel 1    (tells the drive to look at channel 1 for start/stop)
  • CMD channel 1 = HMI                                     (tells the drive what command channel 1 is)

Note: If your drive is already set to I/O Profile  control mode, you can opt to leave that parameter set the way it is. As long as you have your reference and command channels programmed correctly, it won't matter what the
control mode is set to.
However, going from I/O Profile to Separate would force a factory reset. So if you're already set to I/O Profile, leave it in I/O Profile unless you want to do a factory reset.
