Issue:
How do you set up the ATV61/ATV71 drive with an VW3A3316 ethernet IP option card to use assemblies 100 and 101?

Product Line:
Altivar ATV61 ATV71 with VW3A3316 or VW3A3320 option cards

Environment:
All 

Cause:
Using an Allen Bradley PLC they need to set up the ATV61 with an VW3A3316 ethernet IP option card to use assemblies 100 and 101.

Resolution:

PLC settings:

The Ethernet Scanner Module needs to be configured as followed. 
1.  Set up the input and output tables as a Generic option. 
2.  Assembly 100 output table Size 8 bytes (writing command)
3.  Assembly 101 input table Size 8 bytes (reading command)
4.  Configuration Size 6    size 0
5.  Single INT or single Integer. 

Drive settings:
[Note] - programming example only you can configure the drive to match your logic input configuration. 

1.  Menu 1.6 [COMMAND]
Ref 1 channel  = Com card
Profile = I/O profile
CMD  Switching = How do you set up the ATV61/ATV71 drive with an VW3A3316 ethernet IP option card to use assemblies 100 and 101?
CMD channel 1= Com card
CMD channel 2= Terminal control
ref 2 Switching = channel 1 active

2.  menu 1.7 [APPLICATION FUNCTION]
Ref Switching
Ref 1 B Switching = LI3
Ref 1 B channel = AI1

Programming will match LI3 to switch between Com card command and reference / Terminal command and AI1 speed reference.
Example LI3 =1 Drive is commanded  from terminal command and speed ref is from AI1
              LI3= 0 Drive is commanded  from com card and speed ref is from the com card. 

Using assemblies 100 and 101 it allow will the PLC's Scanner module to interface with the Drives internal Com Scanner modules in menu 1.9.

3.  Menu 1.9 [COMMUNICATION]
Set up your IP address  123 456 789 456 (example)
Set up your Subnet address 255 255 255 0 (example)
Set up your Gateway address if it applies.
