With the drive powered and in RDY state (no run command present), press Escape until you are in the main menu with Drive Menu highlighted.
Press Enter at drive menu and scroll down to menu 1.4, Motor Control.
Press Enter and scroll down to parameter Motor Control Type, then press Enter.
There will be several options available.  The ATV71 series drive has more options available than the ATV61 series as it can operate in closed loop mode if an encoder is being used.
