# Starting Frequency And Start-time Hold Function (pr. 13, Pr. 571) Air-conditioning inverter.

Setting of acceleration/deceleration time and acceleration/ deceleration pattern
4.8.2
Starting frequency and start-time hold function (Pr. 13, Pr. 571)
You can set the starting frequency and hold the set starting frequency for a certain period of time.
Set these functions when you need the starting torque or want to smooth motor drive at a start.

NOTE
The inverter will not start if the frequency setting signal is less than the value set in Pr. 13.
For example, when 5Hz is set in Pr. 13, the motor will not start running until the frequency setting signal reaches 5Hz.

NOTE
 When the start signal was turned OFF during start-time hold, deceleration is started at that point.
 At switching between forward rotation and reverse rotation, the starting frequency is valid but the start-time hold
function is invalid.
Note that when Pr. 13 is set to any value equal to or lower than Pr. 2 Minimum frequency, simply turning ON the
start signal will run the motor at the preset frequency even if the command frequency is not input.
