How do I disable the Line Contactor.

Issue:
Customer wants to keep the line contactor in the circuit to allow the drive to decelerate verses freewheel stop.

Product Line:
E-Flex

Environment:
E-Flex with modification B09 (line contactor).
 
Cause:
The line contactor opens when the run command is removed.
 
Resolution:
There is no documentation / data to support this reconfiguration of the original design. This could possible have an effect on the drive ratings. Caution: This procedure should only be performed while power has been removed from the E-Flex.
Place a jumper between terminals 4 and 11.  This circuit modification will keep the line contactor closed when the switch is in the AFC position.  The line contactor will remain open when the switch is in OFF or BYPASS.
