What is the maximum distance to wire speed potentiometer to an Altivar Drive?

Issue:
What is the maximum distance to wire speed potentiometer to an Altivar Drive?

Product Line:
Altivar Drives

Environment:
All serial numbers for Altivar Drives

Cause:
N/A

Resolution:
There is no maximum distance on the drive to wire a speed potentiometer.
Longer the distances will result in more voltage drop.
One option would be to calculate the total voltage drop and scale the drive accordingly (easily done in the ATV212, ATV61 or ATV71).
Another option would be to use an external power supply to overcome the long cable connection.
