Is the drive in FAULT mode when you start CNC12 and Reset BUT do not press cycle start or do anything else?
OR
Does the drive fault as soon as you try and command a move, either via Cycle start to HOME, Jog, or command a move in MDI?

One or BOTH drives?

Try this,
Shut down, restart the control and drives.
Start CNC12
DO NOT HOME
Use the Jog buttons to jog ONE axis at a time.
If one axis faults, Power down and repeat but try the other axis.

Trying to find out if one or BOTH drives are faulting.

Also, you have the ALM+ lines connected to Input 5 and ALM- connected to Acorn Power Supply Com correct?

IF your drives and motors came with an Encoder extension cable, make sure you are using it.
Your picture of the drive powered does not show it faulted. Just a green LED.

When you power up the drive, it is assumed the motor rotor is LOCKED and holding.
You might temporarily disconnect the Enable wire until you get the motor moving too. (manual states that by default, the drives are ENABLED)

Blinking light is on motor driver blinking 7 times
it work first day didn't change any thing wouldn't next day
yes go to move z + or z- motor only move about one step DRO keep moving and about .900 I get drive fault on CNC12 screen
light on driver box starts flashing 7 times
Yes I think I have driver set for 1600 steps sw1 on sw2 off sw3 on sw 4 on
I only have one axis it on z at this time
i start cnc12 press reset button press z+ or z- motor move one step I am using jog buttons

OK.
It looks like you have the dipswitch set correctly.
Are you using the encoder cable extension that came with the drive/motor?

Try swapping motor and drive with the other set you have not tested yet

i have tried disconnect the enable wire same
when I power up motor is locked holding
yes i am using extension cable
at this time I have only one driver and motor

I have talk to John at Automation tech for about 3 days he doesn't know refer to me to Centroid Forum
I need help

Well, it would have helped if you had the second motor and drive to test with and eliminate that the drive/motor you have is bad or not.

Roughly where do you live? Maybe there is another Acorn user that can help.

The fact that you say one day it was running and the next day it was faulting (and you did nothing?) makes me suspect a faulty drive/motor.
