**When wiring drives to controller, ensure that no relay has more than one drive wired to it.**

Issue with wiring multiple drives to one relay:

-In a scenario where two drives are wired to the same relay, a problem arrises when the one drive is set to "manual" while the other remains in "auto". This sends both open and close power to the drive that remains in "auto", and causes the drive to run through limit switches and/or freeze up.

If two drives are already wired and cannot be changed for whatever reason, please follow these steps when operating the system from the drive:

1.) Turn power off to both drives.
2.) Set both drives to "manual".
3.) Restore power to drives to operate.

Once finished,

4.) Turn power off to both drives.
5.) Set both drives to "auto".
6.) Restore power to drives.
