Any of the drive output relays can be programmed as a fault status. Normally, the R1 relay is factory set to a fault status function. R1 has a NO (R1C-R1A) and a NC (R1C-R1B) set of dry contacts. When the VFD control board is powered and NOT in a faulted status, the R1 relay will change state. When the VFD goes to a faulted status, the R1 relay will drop back to normal state.  Consider the function to be a NO FAULT relay:  R1 goes active when there is NO FAULT detected.
Assign the specific relay to the function "Operating State Fault".
