Jonathan Bivings' completed field retrofit

Jonathan Bivings completed a field retrofit where he replaced a GE drive with an A1000 on a mill at Central Plains Cement Company in Oklahoma. The gearbox on this thing is the size of a small room. The A1000 drive is used to creep the very large motor in a jog mode up to 6 Hz. A lot of technical resources were involved in planning this complicated retrofit (Steve Lyons, Lonnie Gillilan). Thank you so much to everyone who pitched in!
