Video: How do I calibrate the Analog Output (FM) on the ATV212 drive?

Issue:
How do I scale the Analog Output (FM) on the ATV212 drive?.

Product Line:
ATV212
S-Flex

Environment:
All models and serial numbers.

Resolution:
When using voltage (0-10Vdc) connect your load prior to calibration.  When using current (4-20mA) connect the load after calibration.
 
If you want to follow OUTPUT CURRENT (FMSL = 1)
4-20mA (no load)
  1. Set DIP switch FM (SW101) to "I" (left)
  2. Set F692 for 20 (20% of 20mA = 4mA)
  3. Set FMSL to 15 
  4. Go to parameter FM and enter
  5. Connect the current meter to terminals FM and CC
  6. Press the UP and DOWN arrows until meter reads desired 100% (20mA)
  7. Press enter to lock in the scale
  8. Set FMSL = 1 to follow motor current
0-10Vdc (connect the load)
  1. Set DIP switch FM (SW101) to "U" (right)
  2. Set F692 to 0 (0% of 10V = 0V)
  3. Set FMSL to 15
  4. Go to parameter FM and enter
  5. Connect the volt meter to terminals FM and CC
  6. Press the UP and DOWN arrows until meter reads desired 100% (10Vdc)
  7. Press enter to lock in the scale
  8. Set FMSL = 1 to follow motor current
ALL OTHER analog output functions (FMSL = 0,2,3 - 18)
4-20mA (no load)
  1. Set DIP switch FM (SW101) to "I" (left)
  2. Set F692 for 20 (20% of 20mA = 4mA)
  3. Set FMSL to 17
  4. Go to the FM parameter and enter
  5. Connect the current meter to terminals FM and CC
  6. Press the UP and DOWN arrows until meter reads desired 100% (20mA)
  7. Press enter to lock in the scale
  8. Set FMSL back to the analog output function you want to follow  per the table below.
0-10Vdc (connect the load)
1. Set DIP switch FM (SW101) to "U" (right)
2. Set F692 to 0 (0% of 10V = 0V)
3. Set FMSL to 17 
4. Go to parameter FM and enter
5. Connect the meter between terminals FM and CC
6. Press the UP and DOWN arrows until meter reads desired 100% (10Vdc)
7. Press enter to lock in the scale
8. Set FMSL back to the analog output function you want to follow  per the table below.

Note:  Calibration can also be performed using the VW3A1101 remote keypad.  Turn the knob clockwise instead of using the up arrow and turn counter clockwise instead of  using the down arrow.
