Per above. The Omron V1000 is the same as the Yaskawa V1000. I have this model on my mill, b1-01 = 1 is the default, but it varies on how the VFD was setup, there are several different template parameter files. So you do need to check this parameter.

I recall getting stumped when mine would only go up to 65Hz if I recall.... There was a parm for max output (in Hertz) that the VFD would go up to.
maybe this has a parm like that. Just passing 2cents along. I also had spots in the manual with incorrect data. Would would say a "1 here does this... another page would say a "1" did the opposite. trial & error there!

Hope it is all up and running now!

For some reason ,probably my stupidity . I can't seem to be able to set the parameter . I'm not very savy with this sort of stuff . Any assistance would be appreciated Thanks .
