Can an ATV61 drive in an enclosed system be replaced by a process drive?

Issue:
Can an ATV61 drive in an enclosed system be replaced by a process drive?
 
Product line:
ATV600 series Altivar process drive.
 
Environment:
All open style Altivar Process drives, all serial numbers
 
Cause:
Customer likes the new features of the process drive but has an existing enclosed system or MCC
 
Resolution:

The Altivar Process drive can functionally replace an ATV61 series drive.  Note that various option cards may be needed for serial communication or extended I/O functions.   The Process drive will have different physical dimensions and mounting hardware so check to see if the process drive can be mounted in your enclosure and still maintain sufficient free air space to cool itself properly.   There is no retrofit kit available to replace an ATV61 with an Altivar Process drive so it may be necessary to perform a custom modification of your enclosure in order to properly mount the Altivar process drive.
