What is the part number for an AC Drive Potentiometer?

Published date: 19 August 2019

Issue:
Is there a Potentiometer available for an AC drive?

Product Line:
All Altivar Drives

Environment:
All

Cause:
Customer needs a speed pot for an Altivar drive.

Resolution:
Most of the drives will accept any potentiometer rated between 1k Ohms and 10 k Ohms, 1/2 Watt. See the installation user guide for the specific drive that you are using to determine the specific range that it can use.

Part number ATVPOT25K is a complete 22mm operator with mounting collar and 2.5K ohm potentiometer that has been a standard part number for many years (drawing attached for reference).  However, this part is in the process of being phased out.
The E-Flex, M-Flex and MCC `s all use the ZB5AD922 operator in conjunction with part # 80442-273-02 (2.5k ohm pot)

Suggest using one of the following:
For 22mm 
Metal - XB4BD912R10K 
Plastic - XB5AD912R10K 

For 30mm 
Metal - 9001K2108
Plastic - 9001SK2108
