What is Parker INPUT 1 BREAK alarm mean on a Parker AC drive?

from the troubleshooting guide: A signal break has been detected on analog input 1 (terminal 1), Analog input is incorrectly configured for 4-20mA operation, Break in external control wiring

To clear the input 1 break alarm, you will first need to find why it appeared in the first place. If this is a new installation, you can go straight to the input parameters and check that they are configured properly,the most common mistake is selecting 4-20ma instead of 0-10V.

If it is an existing application, it is more likely a wiring problem, you will need to go get your ohmeter/voltmeter and go to work.
