Can the ATS48 run in a test mode when a motor is not connected?

Issue:
Can the ATS48 run in a test mode when a motor is not connected?

Product Line:
Altistart 48 ATS48

Environment:
All models

Cause:
Does ATS48 have same ability as a VFD to run with motor disconnected?

Resolution:
No.  The unit must have output current or it will fault on PHF.  For testing purposes, setting menu drC, parameter SSt = ON allows the use of a small motor compared to the ATS48 rating.  Note that SSt does have limits for very small currents and may trip PHF.
