Can an ATV320 be programmed to run an automatic preset speed in reverse?

Issue:
Can an ATV320 be programmed to run a preset speed in reverse?

Product Line:
All Altivar 320 drives

Environment:
All

Cause:
Customer needs the drive to automatically run at a preset speed when the reverse command is given 

Resolution:
Yes, you need to program a digital input to be a preset speed and jumper that input over to your reverse input. This way when you send +24VDC to the reverse input, you're also activating the preset speed input. The forward command would need to be removed before giving the drive a reverse command. If you already have preset speeds assigned that you're using for forward speeds, you can also use these presets in reverse. The presets don't know if they're forward or reverse. They're just speed references. So you can use one or more of your existing presets as reverse speed references if desired.
