Environment:

Cause:
Not operating as expected

Resolution:
1) Verified FnOd is set properly (1 for VIA, 2 for VIB, 3 for HMI, 4 for Serial Communication).
2) Check logic input programming to be sure a preset speed command is not present (F108, F110, F111, F112, F113)
3) Make sure F360 (PID Control enable) is set to 0 if not using PID in the drive.
4) If using PID control, check feedback signal and setpoint.

Consult ATV212 programming manual for details.
Found F360 was set to 1 so the drive was in PID mode but had no feedback signal.
Turned F360 to 0 and the drive operated properly.
