    Default EZ Trak Run away Axis

    I have had this 3-axis EZ Trak sitting in my shop for a while. I decided to fire it up but got a "Drives Not On" and "Axis Drive Fault" message after trying to Home the machine. Upon inspecting the CIB, I realized that I was missing a ribbon cable from the BMDC to the Aux card (see image 4137). I happen to have some spare Bridgeport cables and installed it (see image 4138t). When I went to Home the machine, all three axis started to run away so I E-stopped it. Can anyone provide some insights as to what might be going on here?

    Lack of encoder feedback can cause axis runaway.
