Error: Short-to-ground on drivers 0 1

  • Hello,
    i got a vew Problems with my Duet WIFI
    Duet WIFI (firmware up to date)
    Meanwell RSP500-24
    Mosfet (only cause the breakout connector couldn´t handle the thick wires)
    Nema 17 17HS4417 1.8° 1.7A
    Nema 17 1.8° 0.5A (for testing)

    I´m trying to build a Core XY.

    I have connected everething like in the wiki.

    for the first tests, i´ve uploaded some existing configs from someone who build the same printer, just to have a basic setting.
    then is tested the Z-axis, they are working, one turing the other direction, but that doesn´t matter so far, cause there is no load on the motors
    after that i tried X and Y axis, more than a realy quick vibrating doesn´t come withe the Error: Short-to-ground on drivers 0 1
    First i thought i connected something wrong, so i checked every wire and found nothing.
    so i startet to asked unkle Google.
    The only thing i found was this discussion about an broken board. There was something about the motor current, so i raised it from 800ma to 1600ma and tried again…
    because i don´t know what to do, i´ve ripped of all the wires and connected them again in case there was a fault i didn´t notice, maybe…
    but nothing, the same again.

    no i thougt hey what about a broken motor? new one, but shit may happen. so i tried the Z motors on the X and Y axis, the same Error.
    The X and Y motors on Z are working.
    Tried the other nema 17 with 0.5A the same.

    Because of all that, i think there couldn´t be something wrong in the wires and connectors, a broken motor is also impossible it only could be some settings, i don´t know, or i got a broken board.

    So now i don´t know what to do, can annybody help me, or do i have to send the board back?

    Thanks for your Help

    If you disconnect the X and Y stepper motors and command X and Y movements, do you get the same message, and do the driver chips get hot?

  • Good morning,
    with disconected stepper motors i don´t get any mesage
    without the fan i didn´t notice any temperature
    i would say that the chips are a little bit warmer (2-3°)above environmental.
    waited for 5minutes, is this long enough?

  • administrators

    If the drivers don't get hot when you enable them (by commanding movement) with no motors connected, and you don't get the warning messages either, perhaps you really do have either a short between wires or a short to ground in the motor wiring.

  • seems legit, but
    why does the z-motors with the z-cable work on the Z connector and doesn´t work on the X and Y connector?
    the X and Y motors either work with their calbles on the Z Connector

  • i got other cables her, will crimp a plug on them and test again

  • administrators

    Is there any sign of damage to the X or Y stepper driver chips, such as a round mark off-centre?

  • can´t see any damage.
    but now it´s getting strange!
    the new cable, only 15cm long 4 seperate wires so i can see that there is absolutely no connection to each other
    Motor current is set to 800mA

    This i tried on the Y-connector
    trying the small nema 0,5A in my handworking, but doing verry strange movements
    trying the one of the nema 1.7A (Z-axis), witch are build on the hypercube, the error comes again. That motor worked on the Z-axis connector without problems

    This on the X-connector
    now i plugged the Z-motor (giving an error on Y) on the X connector. working for 2seconds doing trange movements and then i had the error.
    the small 0,5A nema working, but doing that strange movements

    strange movements:
    i would say he´s getting an right and left at the same time, so he doesn´t know what to do.

    i wired everething like on this page

    first i thought, i have connected 2 wired wrong, so i turned the 2 A wires, the same movement of the motor

  • administrators

    I think there must be a fault on your Duet, if the motors work OK when connected to the Z connector but not when connected to the X or the Y connector. Please ask your supplier to replace it.

  • here a picture of the wires connected to the motor

  • ok thanks for your help
    have a great day
