I am trying to get all motors to stop if there is a fault on any one motor. Cureently, that isn't happening, the other two motors keep running.
Thanks

That’s certainly an issue and again I don’t use the C86 board. Sounds like an enable/drive fault issue somewhere. I have DIN rail relays wired to all three HLFB circuit and if any one motor faults they all stop as Acorn stops them with a drive fault error message. Acorn controls the enable line of the motors in my systems. This is what stops ALL motors if any one motor faults. Does Acorn “enable” your drives or does the C86 enable them? Sounds to me like you might have a HLFB issue or jumper issue with the C86 and the enable circuits.

There’s clearly an issue somewhere in the system and adding a contactor is just a band-aid, I’d suggest finding the issue rather than coming up with a workaround.
