MP40 driver powers off after 90 seconds

So far I have had a crappy morning with just about every component in the tank failing for whatever reason (explained in other threads here). All of a sudden my MP40 (and my MP10) driver shuts off after exactly 90 seconds. If I then unplug the power cord to the driver and plug it back in it runs fine for another 90 seconds until it shuts off again. Any idea on why this is? I have tried to connect it to several different power sources that are independent of each other all with the same results. Please help!

Thanks!

Problem resolved. Spoke a little too soon here. Did a driver reset and seems to work fine now.

So this started to happen again today. Had to do another restet of the controller. I should not have to do this at all. Any ideas on why?

That is a very unusual issue. I would recommend contacting our service department directly to more advanced troubleshooting.

Find the cure for this yet? I'm having the same problem. I upgraded both my MP40 to the Quiet Drive driver board.

Yes. If I remember correctly, was a while ago now, It had to do with how they were linked to the Neptune WMX module. Once the connection got reset it seemed to work fine.
