When a drive is being controlled over a network, there must be frequent communication between the controller and the drive to ensure safe operation.
The timeout for modbus communication is set by parameter tto [Modbus Timeout] which is found in the Communication menu under the Modbus Fieldbus sub menu.
If you are using a different communication network be sure to review the instructions for that network for details on Timeout.

To resolve, verify the controller is performing a Read or Write request within the timeout period.
Review wiring for proper connections, terminating resistors, shielding as detailed in the instructions for the network being used.
Verify proper grounding of the VFD and cable routing of control, communication and power to reduce electrical noise.
