Issue:
Is the ATV66 drive series still available? If not, what is the replacement?
 
Product Line:
Altivar 66,  ATV66
 
Environment:
All
 
Cause:
The ATV66 drives were obsoleted in 2004.
 
Resolution:
 You can replace the ATV66 with the ATV71 or ATV930 for constant torque applications or ATV630 for variable torque applications. Select drives base on application requirements for voltage, horsepower and current.

Note: If the ATV66 is in an enclosure, then our recommendation is to replace the entire enclosure, not just the drive. Enclosures are designed and built specifically for the original drive inside. Replacement drives could be very different in physical characteristics and heat dissipation requirements. Therefore, replacing just the drive might lead to having to rewire the enclosure and possible component failure due to excessive heat inside the enclosure.
