Can ATV312 drive be programmed to have a 3-contactor bypass?

Issue:
Can ATV312 drive be programmed to have a 3-contactor bypass?

Product Line:
ALTIVAR 312, ATV312

Environment:
All
 
Cause:
setup

Resolution:
ATV312 is not available as an enclosed product and there are no programming options for a 3-contactor bypass control. However, the drive relay can be configured for drive running that can pull in a DOC drive output contactor (aux contact)  to satisfy a run permissive (assigned to a logic input). The bypass and Isolation contactor are controlled through an external control circuit. 
Mostly controlled by the control circuit not the drive. In the EFLEX design w/ bypass, the ATV312 drive would connect the same way as an ATV61. LI2 is assigned to run permissive (nSt) which is satisfied the the DOC contactor.
