Issue:
Customer would like to restart (reboot) the drive without having to cycle power.

Product Line:
ATV630
ATV660
ATV930

Environment:
All Models, All serial numbers

Cause:
Restart to clear errors or load new communication parameter settings usually requires a power cycle.

Resolution:
 
If connected via a network; you can write a value of 21072 to address 1500 it will reboot the drive as if it had been power cycled.

You can also use the HMI to do this by going to Complete Settings - Error/Warning Handling - and change the Product Restart (rP) to YES and press and hold the OK button for 2 seconds.
Also, a digital input can be assigned to perform this by setting the Prod Restart Assign (rPA) to one of the DI's in the same menu as above.

NOTE:  The Product Restart and Prod Restart Assign parameters are only available if the Access Level has been set to Expert.
