Why won't my ATV61/71 run when I press the Run button on the keypad?

Published date: 04 January 2019

Issue:
ATV61/71 doesn't respond to keypad command

Product Line:
Altivar 61, Altivar 71

Environment:
All

Cause:
Drive control issue

Resolution:
Check to make sure that the drive is in local control mode. You should see 'LOC' and 'HMI' in the top bar of the display.
If you see 'Term' and 'REM', the drive is looking for command from the terminals (DI1,DI2,etc), and the drive will need to be put into local control to accept commands from the keypad.
See this article for further details on toggling between local (keypad) and remote (terminal) control modes.
