Issue:
How can your read the KW and motor power data on the ATV630 and ATV930 Process drives?

Product Line:
Altivar ATV630 ATV930

Environment:
All

Cause:
Want to read the KW and Motor power ratings. 

Resolution:
EPRW (reg 3293) is a parameter reporting the estimated power consumed by the motor.
OPRW (reg 3292) is a parameter reporting the estimated mechanical power provided by the motor.
Both parameters are in HP or KW depending on the Motor Standard (BFR).  BFR = 50 in KW, BFR = 60 in HP.

Of course, there is a difference between these two parameter values reflecting the efficiency of the motor.
