How do I scale the analog output on the S-flex, ATV21 and ATV212 drives?

Issue:
Customer is using the analog out to reflect motor frequency.

Product line:
Altivar 21, 212, S-flex, Sflex
 
Environment:
All models, all serial numbers:
 
Cause:

None

Resolution:
Analog Output Scaling Setup
 
When using voltage (0-10v) connect your load prior to scaling.  When using current (4-20mA) connect the load after scaling.
 
To Set up analog output to track motor current (FNSL assignment = 1)
4-20ma  (no load, only meter)
  1. Set switch FN (SW2) to “I” (down)
  2. Set F692 to 20% (4 ma is 20% of 20ma so scaling must be adjusted to 20%-100%)
  3. Set FNSL to 15
  4. Go to parameter FM
  5. Connect the current meter to terminals FN and CC
  6. Press the UP or DOWN arrows until meter reads desired 100% (20ma)
  7. Press Enter
  8. Set FNSL to 1.

0-10v (connect the load)
  1. Set switch FN (SW2) to “V” (up)    Set F692 to 0%
  2. Set FNSL to 15
  3. Go to parameter FN
  4. Connect the volt meter to terminals FN and CC
  5. Press the UP or DOWN arrows to adjust output until the volt meter reads 100% (10V)
  6. Press enter
  7. Set FNSL to 1.

ALL OTHER analog output functions (FNSL = 0,2,3 – 18)
4-20ma  (no load)
  1. Set switch FN (SW2) to “I” (down)
  2. Set F692 for 20% (20% of 20ma = 4mA)
  3. Set FNSL to 17
  4. Go to the FM parameter
  5. Connect the current meter to terminals CC and FM
  6. Press enter at parameter FN (should see 100)
  7. Using the up arrow key adjust FN until the Current meter reads desired 20 (20ma)
  8. Press enter
  9. Set FNSL back to the analog output function you want to follow.

0-10v (connect the load)
  1. Set switch FN (SW2) to “V” (up)
  2. Set F692 to 0 (0% of 0-10v = 0%)
  3. Set FNSL to 17 (the drive will disconnect the volt meter)
  4. Go to the FM parameter
  5. Connect the meter between terminals CC and FM
  6. Go to parameter FN
  7. Using the up arrow key adjust FN until the volt meter reads 100% (10V)
  8. Press enter
  9. Set FNSL back to the analog output function you want to follow.
