Hi ,My name is***** will be glad to help. We can follow up as needed on here, Give me some time to review your information and post my responses. Im not an employee of the site but I help on here as time allows in between jobs. Response time will vary depending on my work load , etc. Also, are there any particular functions or movements that cause this to occurr? It sounds like it may be safety interlock switch related. Do you have the manuals for this or did you need help with that as well?

Thanks for the update. Check the interlock switches and and wiring to see if it is shutting down due to an interlock switch problem or fault. Are there any conditions running under that might trigger a safety switch? That is where to start. If you have the manuals, you have the schematics to test out the circuits with your Volt/OHM meter. Let me know the results and if we need to dig deeper into this.

Please take a moment to rate as that is how the site credits my time helping on the site or let me know if you need more help. 5 star and bonuses are always greatly appreciated.
