Activating automatic restart function on the Altivar Process drives

Product Line:

All Products of Altivar Process Drive 

Automatic restart after fault.

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.

It is also advisable to activate to Catch on the Fly in case the motor is already spinning when the drive restarts. (Complete Settings -> Error/Warning Handling)

Conditions that have to be met:
Must be in 2 wire control with run command present.
The automatic restart function has to be activated.
The condition that caused fault code has to have been resolved.  

The lists of fault codes that can be cleared automatically are listed in the ATV600 Programming Manual and ATV900 Programming Manual.
