Where should I connect a load reactor to an enclosed drive system, if it was not included as an internal device with the system?

Issue:
Where should I connect a load reactor to an enclosed drive system, if it was not included as an internal device with the system?

Product Line:
Enclosed drive packages (E-flex, S-flex, M-flex, MCC, IFD, Altivar Outdoor, . . . .)

Environment:
Enclosed drive packages where an external load reactor is being added to an existing enclosed product: The load reactor was not an included option with the enclosed package but it being added.

Cause:
Clarification needed, Information is unavailable or unclear in current literature.

Resolution:
When a load reactor is being connected to an existing enclosed drive product, where the load reactor was not ordered as an included option in the cabinet, the motor leads should connect to the load side of the reactor, and the line side of the reactor should connect to the designated motor connection point inside the enclosed product.   See attached picture for further clarification.
