Yup, you toss the C86 in the trash and wire the IPC5 power supplies through your favorite low voltage contactor via output relay 1 set to "NoFaultOut". Not sure why you continue trying to complicate the issue with the C86 but after all it's your time and machine. There's a basic wiring diagram for "standard connections" that might help you with understanding the contactor wiring. See diagram S14953. If this is over your head please find someone local who can help you with the connections. It's not difficult to follow but you need a basic understanding of circuitry, best wiring practices and electrical schematics.

Got it working. When the motor faults, should the reset button be highlighted in white? Thanks
