Short Description Rated Current


This variable sets the required rated output continuous current. The adjustment is usually made to the standstill current for the connected motor. The value entered is limited to the lower of the rated current of the motor (MICONT) or the rated current of the amplifier (DICONT). This variable is used in the monitoring of the actual RMS current that is drawn. If the ICONT value is too low, the drive shows following errors and the torque is too low. If the ICONT value is too high, the motor can be thermally overloaded.
