How do you program the ATV61 or ATV71 drive to start running on power up with mains power?

Issue:
How do you program the ATV61 or ATV71 drive to start running at full speed when input power is turned on? 

Product Line:
Altivar ATV61 and ATV71 

Environment:
All

Cause:
Needs the drive to start up and run at full speed when they power up the drive.

Resolution:
Programming the drive as below:
 
Menu 1.5 [Input/Output Config]
Change 2 wire type to Level
Menu 1.1 [Simply Start]
Set Low speed to 60hz for full speed.  
NOTE: if you want the drive to start on power up but need it to follow an analog or communication setpoint then set Low Speed and High Speed to your operating range.
 
 Wiring on the ATV61 or ATV71 drive. 
Jumper +24vdc to LI1 to always have the run command present, or wire your Normally open start command between LI1 and +24.  If that circuit is open, the drive will not start.

Please review the installation to ensure starting on power up is safe.  This is the responsibility of the person making these changes.
