What does the parameter nCr on Altivar Drives work for?

nCr parameter on Altivar Drives

Product Line:

ATV312, ATV61, ATV71, ATV32, ATV12


nCr is the Rated motor current.
Its adjustment range goes from 0.25 to 1.5 In (1) and factory setting According to drive rating and [Standard mot. freq] (bFr).
Rated motor current can be found on the motor's nameplate.

What will cause an error in Somove,when downloading a saved file to a VFD?

Somove error while downloading a saved file to a VFD

Product Line:
ATV61, ATV71, ATV312, ATV212, ATV12, ATV31, ATV21, ATV32

All models and serial numbers

Possible issues with downloading Saved Projects to a new VFD.
The drive is of a different type
The drive versions and the file version are not compatible
The drive or drive version is not supported by the version of Somove
The project file is corrupt
There is not an active connection between Somove the VFD


1). Verify the VFD and the version is support by the version of Somove
2).  Check that the Project Product Version is the same as the Current Drive Product Version. 
3). Verify the comm port setting on the project is the same as the comm port setting being used on the current connection
4).  Verify connection to the VFD is possible without downloading a project.
       a).  Close current project
       b).  Under File Menu select Go To Start Page
       c).  Edit Connection and then select the connection type 
       d).  Go to Advanced setting, make the appropriate selection for the connection and press OK
       e).  Scan Network and wait for somove to scan for devices
       f).  Select the device to connection
       g).  Press connect and follow prompt on screen

Where can I find Altivar ATV12 and Altivar ATV32 firmware update instructions?

ATV12 and ATV32 firmware update instructions.

Product Line:
Altivar ATV12 and ATV32


Needs to get the instructions on how to update the firmware on the ATV12 and ATV32 drives.

To update the ATV12 or the ATV32 firmware revision you will need a VW3A8121 Multiloader and a VW3A8122 cable.
and see the attached file for instructions.

Why is the ATV312 tripping on SCF or short circuit fault on power up?

ATV312 tripping SCF 

Product line:
Altivar 312, ATV312, ATV31

All models, all serial numbers 

The drive trips on a SCF or a Short Circuit Fault if the drive detects a short circuit on the output of the drive.       

-Make sure all of the motor parameters are set in the DRC menu to match the motor name plate.  
-Check to make sure you don't have a long cable run of more than 100 feet. If you do, we recommend installing a output load reactor.
-Test the drive operation without the motor connected; turn off OPL (output phase loss) in the FLT menu. Try running the drive open circuit at 15, 30, 45, and 60Hz checking the output voltage phase to phase with a true RMS digital meter for balance at each frequency level.
Set Output Phase Loss attachment

-Check the motor and cables connecting to the drive for shorts phase to phase and phase to ground. 
-Check connections in the motor junction box for proper wiring.  
-Install a motor protecting output filter or load reactor at the output of the drive.
-Reduce the switching frequency (SFR in the SEt- menu). 
Set switching frequency attachment

If the SCF fault occurs with no motor or wiring connected to the drive, the drive will need to be replaced.

Refer to the attached ATV312 Programming manual BBV46385.

Note: Similar steps apply to the ATV12, ATV11, ATV32 and other Altivar Drive Products.

What is an InF3 fault on an Altivar 12 drive?

Altivar 12 with InF3 fault.

Product Line:

All serial numbers for ATV12


This is an internal issue with the drive. 
Power the drive down. 
Once the display is blank, power the drive back up. 
If the drive faults on InF3, a factory reset can be done by going to ConF menu and set FCS to InI (hold for 2 seconds). 
Power cycle the drive.
If this does not fix the issue, it is recommended that the drive be replaced.
