Issue
Can I remotely mount the DC Choke on ATV61 / ATV71 high horsepower?
 
Product Line
All ATV61 and ATV71

Environment
All

Cause
Not enough space in enclosure for drive and choke

Resolution:  
It is recommended to use the "D" version (order without a choke) on the drive and use a Line Reactor. With the choke, installing with longer cables will cause higher voltage losses, more heat, and potentially higher voltage swings on the DC bus. 
(You also have to properly protect the cables, preventing contact with them, since the line supply terminals are close to DC bus terminals)
