How To Access The AC Tech SMVector Parameter Menu

The AC Tech parameter menu can be deceptive when one first uses the drive. To access the parameter menu of an AC Tech SMVector drive they must first enter the default password that is included with the unit when it is shipped. Many customers call us with this issue if theyve never used an AC Tech SMVector drive before.

The parameter menu allows users to access any of the parameters available in the AC Tech SMVector drive and modify them as they wish. It is important to note that the user should make sure to check the SMVector users manual to check whether or not the parameter they wish to modify can be modified without stopping the drive first.

There are also a few parameters in the parameter menu that will require a system reboot prior to the parameter change taking place. This information is also available in the SMVector manual in the parameters section. No matter your reason for changing the parameters, the AC Tech SMVector parameter menu is incredibly easy to access.
