    You can go through the Simply Start Menu to perform your basic settings:

    From the Main Menu select [Simply start]:

    [Motor Standard] bFr -            50Hz IEC or 60Hz NEMA- motor nameplate

    [Nominal motor power] nPr -   Motor HP - motor nameplate

    [Nom Motor Voltage] UnS -      Motor voltage - motor nameplate

    [Nom Motor Current] nCr -       Motor FLA - motor nameplate

    [Nominal Motor Freq] FrS -      60Hz in the US - motor nameplate

    [Nominal Motor Speed] nSP -   Actual motor max speed, not Syncrhonus speed unless it is a synchronus motor - motor nameplate

    [2/3-Wire Control] tCC -           Factory default is '2-Wire Control' 

    [Max Frequency] tFr -              Max frequency of the motor, usually 60Hz - motor nameplate

    [Autotuning] tUn -                    No Action, Apply Autotuning, Erase Autotuning 

    [Autotuning Status] tUS -         Displays 'Not Done' unless Autotuning is performed

    [Motor Th Current] ItH -            Motor thermal current - motor nameplate - used to set the motor overload protection level

    [Acceleration] ACC -                 Acceleration time in seconds

    [Deceleration] dEC -                 Deceleration time in seconds

    [Low Speed] LSP -                    Minimum speed, drive will never run lower than this speed when given a run command

    [High Speed] HSP -                  Maximum speed, drive will never run higher than this speed when given a run command

    In many instances these parameters will be enough to sufficiently program a drive. If any further programming is required (such as PID, command/reference switching, hoisting, etc), please refer to the applicable Programming Manual for your drive.
