Programming ATV212 Drive

Product line:
ATV212 or S-Flex 

All models, all serial numbers 

Basic Programming for the ATV212 drive.    


*First set TYP to 2 for 60 hz motors  (doing this first will pre-set many of the other parameters).

Program the following drive parameters:
    0 = Terminals (most common)
    1 = HMI (keypad Run/Stop buttons)
    2 = Communications (Serial Communication)
FNOD - Frequency reference
    1 - Ref Source VIA (4-20mA or 0-10VDC)
    2 - Ref Source VIB (0-10VDC)
    3 - HMI reference (keypad)
    4 - Serial Com Ref
    5 - +/- Speed
AU1 - Auto Ramp Adapt (default is 1, ALWAYS change to 0 unless you understand what it does)
ACC - Acceleration in seconds
DEC - Deceleration in seconds
FH - Max Frequency
UL - Upper Limit Frequency (High Speed)
LL - Lower limit Frequency (Low Speed)
uL - Rated motor frequency
uLu - Rated motor Voltage
tHr - Motor thermal protection ( Full load amps of the motor, for overload protection)
F111 - Terminal F logic input assignment (Programmable input, default = 2; run forward)
F112 - Terminal R logic input assignment (Programmable input, default = 6; preset speed)
F113 - Terminal RES logic input assignment (Programmable input, default = 10; fault reset)
F415 - Rated motor current (Full Load amps of the motor)
F417 - Rated motor speed (Motor rpms)
F601 - Current Limit ( Full load amps of the motor multiplied by the service factor of the motor)
F201 thru F204 scaling the analog input for VIA (sets scale of analog input VIA)
F210 thru F213 scaling the analog input for VIB  (sets scale of analog input VIB)
F201=VIA speed ref level 1 (%)                  If using 4-20mA, set to 20%. If using 0-10V, set to 0%
F202=VIA output frequency level 1 (Hz)     For 4-20mA set to 0, For 0-10V set to 0
F203= VIA speed ref level 2 (%)                Set to 100% unless you're using less than 10V or 20mA
F204= VIA output frequency level 2 (Hz)   Set according to max speed (60Hz in the US)

F210=VIB speed ref level 1 (%)                  For 0-10V set this to 0%
F211=VIB output frequency level 1 (Hz)     For 0-10V set this to 0
F212= VIB speed ref level 2 (%)                 For 0-10V set this to100%. If using 0-5V, set this to 50%
F213= VIB output frequency level 2 (Hz)    Set according to max speed (60Hz in the US)

There are many other settings and functions available.  
Note that S-Flex enclosed drives may have different default values than listed here since the programming is often modified to match the wiring in the enclosure.

Refer to the ATV212 Programming manual S1A53838 for further details.
