Issue:
How is the automatic restart function enabled on Altivar Process drive?

Product Line:
Altivar Process Drive (ATV630, ATV930, ATV650, ATV950, ATV660, ATV960, ATV680, ATV980)

Environment:
All Products of Altivar Process Drive 

Cause:
Automatic restart after fault.

Resolution:
Automatic restart will only work if the drive is being controlled from the terminal strip in 2 wire control (will not work in HMI mode or while using Serial Communication) IF the fault is resettable AND the run command is maintained.

Go into Complete Settings, Command and reference, and set 2 wire type to level control.
Go into Complete Settings, Error/Warning handling, Auto fault reset, and set auto fault reset to yes.
The drive will attempt to reset the fault for the length of time programmed in the Fault Reset Time parameter (default is 5 minutes) as long as the run command remains present on the drive.


Conditions that have to be met:
Must be in 2 wire control with run command present.
The automatic restart function has to be enabled.
The fault code has to be cleared.  The list of fault codes that can be cleared automatically is listed in the ATV600/ATV900 programming manual (links below).
