Issue
Is it possible the use the HMI dial as Hand reference, when configured for PID (Auto reference) ?

Product Line:
8839 EFD EFLEX

Environment:
All

Cause:
No external hand reference

Resolution:
The E-Flex standard Hand-Off-Auto (HOA) switch contact wired to LI3 is opened when in Hand mode and closed when in Auto mode. To allow PI control in Auto mode and HMI control in Hand mode, the logic for this circuit must be reversed so that the contact is closed in Hand mode and opened in Auto mode. Use one of the following methods to wire the HOA selector switch wiring: 
1. Using the HMI, select LI4 as Auto Manual:
MAIN > DRIVE > 1.6 COMMAND MENU> REF. 2 SWITCHING, then select LI4.
2. Ensure that REF. 2 CHANNEL is set to HMI or AI1 as described in “Drive Configuration” on page 82.
3. Connect a jumper wire across H22 and H32 to change. See Figure 25.
Access these wires from the contact block located at the back side of the door mounted HOA switch. The wires are labeled at the terminations.
NOTE: When making this modification, reset the drive in Hand mode by turning the HOA switch from Hand to Auto and then Off.
