XPS Motion Controller and IMS500LM stage

I have an XPS C motion controller and I am trying to connect it with an IMS500LM stage.  I have two drive cards that should be compatible with it and I have the cables that I need to connect it (motor, encoder and eor/therm) but when I try to initialize and then home the stage (step 3.8.1 in the manual) I get a timeout error (5) during the homing.  This happens when it is plugged in to either of the drive cards.  I have another stage (uts100cc) that experiences no problems when I use it with my controller.  Please advise.  I am not sure what to do to solve the problem, thanks.

What are the drives you're using? motor? software version?
