All Altivar DrivesEnvironment:
Customer needs a speed pot for an Altivar drive.Resolution:
Most of the drives will accept any potentiometer rated between 1k Ohms and 10 k Ohms, 1/2 Watt. See the installation user guide for the specific drive that you are using to determine the specific range that it can use.
Part number ATVPOT25K is a complete 22mm operator with mounting collar and 2.5K ohm potentiometer that has been a standard part number for many years (drawing attached for reference). However, this part is in the process of being phased out.
The E-Flex, M-Flex and MCC `s all use the ZB5AD922 operator in conjunction with part # 80442-273-02 (2.5k ohm pot)
