Re: [?]: PowerFlex700s Series A versus Series B

You can use the A but the firmware isn't compatible- meaning you might have to re-enter the parameters. The B cartridge will work in the A and vice-versa but the drive will have to be reset to factory after the cartridge is changed. You'll also loose a lot of features with the A. If it's a basic dri...
