I don't know specifics on the AutomationDestruct drives, but do they have an "Enable / Safety" input that needs to be jumpered in order to function? That's fairly common now.

If there is no Enable / Safety Stop jumper, I would look at your Command Source programming, i.e. you are thinking it is in Keypad control when in fact it is looking for input closures on the terminal block, or serial communications control.

Which brings up another issue: Was this a used drive? If so, I always suggest doing a factor Reset to default settings, because you never know what someone else may have done.

Much Thanks 4 your reply.... I borrowed a keypad and reset all to factory defaults.... the loaner keypad was able to access all settings on VFD... ...keypad of mine is still unable to control VFD.... I conclude keypad is shot!!... VFD is good.... will set it 4 remote control.... Thanks again.
