Issue:
How do I transfer programs from one ATV630/930 series drive to another with the VW3A11111 graphics keypad?

Product Line:
Altivar 630/930

Environment:
All

Cause:
N/A

Resolution:
Please note: When transferring programming, the drives' part numbers and firmware versions, and wiring setup have to match exactly. Otherwise, you will get a configuration error.

To copy the drive's programming to the keypad:
From main menu, go into menu 7 'File management'
Enter menu 7.1 'Transfer config file'
In this menu you have 2 options:
  • 'Copy to the drive' (from the keypad)
  • 'Copy from the drive' (to the keypad)
When the program is copied from the drive to keypad, the drive gives you the option to name the file. The filename can be whatever you want. 
Press OK to continue.

Disconnect the keypad from the drive and connect it to the drive to which you want to copy the programming. 

Downloading from the keypad to the drive is similar:
From main menu, go into menu 7 'File management'
Enter menu 7.1 'Transfer config file'. In this menu choose 'Copy to the drive' 
The drive will prompt you to choose which file you want to use so it is important to remember the name of the file you saved to prior.
Select the file you wish to use and press OK
