Are output filters and line reactors the same on VFDs?

Output filters vs Line reactors

Product Line:


Product features.

No. Output filters and Line reactors are not the same thing. (Load reactor if applied to the output)
Filters reduce DV/DT at the motor by filtering high frequencies. This helps protect the motor.
Line reactors add impedance to the line. This reduces current distortion between the drive and motor if applied to the output. It reduces current distortion on the line when applied to the line side of the drive.
See the information for the specific device for additional details.

Can I remotely mount the DC Choke on ATV61 / ATV71 high horsepower?

Mounting remotely a DC Choke on an high horsepower ATV61/71.
Product Line
All ATV61 and ATV71


Not enough space in enclosure for drive and choke

It is recommended to use the "D" version (order without a choke) on the drive and use a Line Reactor. With the choke, installing with longer cables will cause higher voltage losses, more heat, and potentially higher voltage swings on the DC bus. 
(You also have to properly protect the cables, preventing contact with them, since the line supply terminals are close to DC bus terminals)

Video: What would cause ATV61 and ATV71 drives to not power up and have a blank display?

Troubleshooting Blank Display on Altivar 61 & 71 Drives

Product Line:
Altivar ATV61 and ATV71

All of the ATV61 and ATV71 drives

DC bus is not charging, bad power board or MCB


  1. Check Mains voltage on L1 L2 L3,
  2. Check DC bus voltage on PA+ and PC ( if this drive has a DC choke check to make sure its connected to PA and PO).
  3. Check the +24vdc and +10vdc power supplies. (measure each one to COM)
  4. Power cycle the drive, if needed, and see if the display comes back up.
  5. Check to see if there is an Ethernet cable connected  into the Modbus port.


How do I set up basic programming on an ATV61/71 drive?

Basic programming on ATV61/71 drive.

Product Line:
Altivar 61, Altivar 71


Basic programming to operate an ATV61 or ATV71 drive


Menu 1.1 Simply start
tCC= 2/3 wire control (set to 2 wire control for most installations)
bFr= Standard motor frequency - typically 60hz
nPr= Rated motor power= HP size of the motor
UnS= Rated motor voltage =  motor voltage
nCr= Rated motor current= motor amps (FLA)
FrS= Rated motor Frequency= typically 60hz
NSP= Rated motor speed= motor speed in rpm
fFr= Max Frequency (Hz)
ItH= Motor Thermal Current= Amps (provides overload protection to the motor)
ACC= Ramp up time acceleration (seconds)
DEC= Ramp down time deceleration (seconds)
LSP= Low speed setting (Hz)
HSP=High speed setting (Hz)

Menu 1.3 Settings Menu.
CLi= Motor current limit (Typically set to 120% (ATV61) or 150% (ATV71) of the motor nameplate full load amps, FLA.)

Menu 1.6 Command Menu
Ref.1 channel= AI1 for 0-10VDC control (possibly from a potentiometer)
                      = AI2 for analog input 4-20mA control
                      = HMI for Graphic display terminal (keypad)
                      = (See the ATV61 programming manual for other options)
Profile= Not separate- Reference and command, not separate
          = Separate- Separate reference and command
          = I/O Profile
Ref. 2 switching= [ch1 active] (Fr1): No switching, [Ref.1 channel] (Fr1) active
                         = [ch2 active] (Fr2): No switching, [Ref.2 channel] (Fr2) active
                         = [LI1] (LI1)
                         = (See the ATV61 programming manual for other options)

What are some steps to troubleshoot fault code OHF on an ATV61 and ATV71 drive (Overheating faults)?

Troubleshooting OHF on an ATV61 and ATV71 drive

Product Line:
Altivar ATV61 and ATV71 drives


Drives thermal temp has exceeded 118%

Check to see if the cooling fans are running.  Check for blockage on the top of the drive to see if cooling fans are being restricted.
Menu 1.2 monitoring, check the drives thermal state as the drive starts to warm up, is the signal jumping around?  This could tell us the thermal sensor is inoperative.
The drives thermal state should be 100% and below in normal running conditions.
OHF fault is triggered if the drive thermal state reaches 118%.
Contact your drives product support group for more assistance if needed.
Refer to the attached document for the fan control strategy to determine when the heatsink fans should be running. 

Can Short Circuit Protection be disabled on the Altivar 61 / Altivar 71 series drives?

Wanting to disable the Short Circuit Protection on the Altivar 61 / Altivar 71 series drives.

Product Line:
Altivar 61 / Altivar 71 series drives.

All models, All serial numbers.

Clarification of Short Circuit function is needed.

Short Circuit Detection is always enabled in the ATV61 / ATV71 series drive.  Short circuit fault detection is a hardware based detection system, not software. There are no parameters that can be adjusted to disable this protection.
