ATV212 or ATV21 - How do you set up the drive to run multiple motors

Issue:
Setting up ATV212 or ATV21 to run multiple motors

Product Line:
 ALL ATV212 drives
ALL ATV21 drives


Environment:
ALL

Resolution:
 The drive needs to be sized for the combined FLA of all motors.  There needs to be external overload protection for each motor, and the overloads need to be wired so that if any of them trip, the drive will be shut down. 
In the drive, set the drive current parameters to the combined FLA of both motors.  Turn off the Output Phase Loss ( F605).
All motors must start and stop together and will run at the same speed.
It is not acceptable to start or stop a single motor while the drive is controlling other motors.
