Set up Logic inputs LI5 and LI 6 for + and - speed inputs.

Resolution:
Set up the drive as follows: Wire one side of the switches to the +24v terminal and the other side of the minus switch to a logic input (example LI5) Wire the other side of the plus switch to a logic input (example LI6) 
Program as follows:
CTL menu
RFC Ref 2 switching set to Ch2 active
RF2 Ref 2 channel set to UPdt + and - speed control.
