Can we use PID function and Preset Speeds with the Altivar Process Drives?

Issue:
Customer is using ATV630 drive with PID function.  They want to add Preset Speed function but the drive is not responding.

Product line:
Altivar Process, ATV630, ATV930

Environment:
all

Cause:
Preset does not have priority over the PID function on Channel 1.  

Resolution:
The PID loop won't acknowledge a preset speed on the same channel.  Use a Digital input programmed for PID Auto/Manual to take it out of PID.  Then you an turn on a preset speed. 
You ca set the same Digital Input to both functions if his Access Level is set to Expert.
