Issue:
Is there a touchscreen type HMI available for the ATV61/ATV71 series drives?

Product Line:
Altivar

Environment:
Altivar Machine

Cause:
Customer is searching for a "touchscreen" type HMI to connect to the ATV61 / ATV71 series drive.

Resolution:
There is no "plug and play" touchscreen HMI available for the ATV61 / ATV71 series drive.   There are many Magelis touchscreen HMI that can be used with the ATV61 / ATV71 series drives, but they will need to be programmed to connect to the drive via a Modbus RTU port and will also have to be programmed to access the desired parameters within the drive.   It will not be pre-programmed to access the drive menus, but through proper programming of the HMI, it can be used to interface with an ATV61 / ATV71 series drive for full control or monitoring only.
