I have an AB vfd 1305 1HP connected to devicenet and the vfd lost power on one of its poles,since we do not have any 1hp in stock we thought replacing it with a 2hp amd loading from the HIM would do just fine,first problem is before loading HIM-DRIVE it displays an error 6, but it does allows me to load anyway,after loading everything seems ok, both displays on devicenet module are green and no error on HIM,problem is that the whole system on devicenet faults out on screen amd cant reset it, went online with driveworks and only diference we see is in parameter 137 bit cant change it from laptop, any suggestions or any steps im misssing????? Thanks, by the way im new here and thank you in advance

The reason you can't change that bit is because it is Read-Only, it is just there to TELL you that the control of the drive has been assigned to the ADAPTER you are looking at. Read the end of Chapter 2 in the manual for a description of what that means.

If it is displaying F6 as a fault however, that means that the output current is above the drive rating. The problem likely is that in copying the programming of your 2HP drive and putting it into a 1HP drive, you copied the drive SETUP parameters from the larger drive. So it is attempting to push twice as much current out of the drive than it is capable of. Lucky for you that protection behind the F6 fault is stopping you from blowing up the second drive....
