Issue:
Transfer programming from one drive to another using SoMove Lite.

Product Line:
Altivar Variable Frequency Drives

Environment:
All models compatible with SoMove Lite.

Cause:
None

Resolution:
It is possible to transfer a configuration from one drive to another drive of the same rating and different firmware versions.  However there may be problems if going from a new firmware level to an older firmware level if the new has additional parameters or if the new firmware include a physical hardware update like a new micro processor.
