How can the ATS48 be run without a load/motor?

Issue:
How can the ATS48 be run without a load/motor?

Product Line:
Altistart 48 ATS48

Environment:
All models

Cause:
N/A

Resolution:
This functionalty is very limited on the ATS48 softstarters.  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 in the event that the motor is severly undersized compared to the softstart.

Note: SST parameter reverts back to off upon a power cycle(control side) on softstart.
