Issue:
What wiring and programming has to be taken into account to convert an ATV56 bele-box drive to an ATV61/71? 

Product:
Altivar 61, Altivar 71

Environment:
All

Cause:
N/A

Resolution:
Change LI1 (permissive) on ATV56 to LI2 on the ATV61/71
Change LI2 (run forwad) on ATV56 to LI1 on ATV61/71
ALI will stay the same.
COM will stay the same.
AI2 will stay the same.
All relays will be the same wiring.
Changed wiring in old enclosure terminal blocks 8 and 4 to 6 and 7 respectively. 
 
 
Programming on new drive:
 
1.7 Application function menu; Reference switching
Change Reference 1B switching to AI1
Change Reference 1B channel to AI2

1.7 Application function menu; Stop configuration (if bypass is available)
Change freewheel stop to LI2.

1.5 Inputs and Outputs menu:
R1 will need to be programmed as no drive fault.
R2 will need to be programmed as drive running.

1.6 Command menu:
Ref 1 channel to AI1.
Profile to not separate.

The drive must not be getting an auto start command while the Hand off auto is in hand.  This causes a feedback into LI3 and the drive will look for the reference AI2 instead of AI1 as programmed.
