Issue:
Can one potentiometer be used with multiple drives at different speeds?

Product Line:
Altivar 58, ATV58

Environment:
All serial numbers, all model numbers

Cause:
N/A

Resolution:
Yes.
Connect the pot to one of the drives using the +10, COM and AI1 terminals.
Interconnect the COM and AI1 terminals of the drives so that each drive gets the same 0-10 VDC reference.
The low speed (LSP) and high speed (HSP) settings of each drive can be set independently.

See the installation manual, and the keypad programming manual for more information on wiring and programming.
