I am using Mach3 for plasma cutting.
The torch is firing any time the xyz axis move. This happens when running g-code or jogging.

I'm using this BOB: http://www.ebay.com/itm/5-Axis-CNC-Breakout-Board-For-Stepper-Driver-Controller-mach3-for-Arduino-/400347266412

This is my cutter: http://www.everlastgenerators.com/product/plasma/powerplasma-60s

I'm using a proma 150 THC (Although I can't get it to work either)

The PowerPlasma 60s has a CNC port and i have pins 1&2 wired to the BOB relay-switch. I have the jumper closed on the BOB.
Mach3 / Spindle Set Up / Relay Control set to Output 1 on CW and CCW and
Output signals / Output #1 Enabled / Port1 / Pin17
The torch fires on any axis move but doesn't respond to M3 commands.

I've also tried Output 1 - Port 1 / Pin14 & PCGround - under this configuration it did fire with M3 commands but also fired under any axis move.

Jumping the CNC port's pins 1 and 2 together fires the torch.

ALSO: The THC isn't working either. All pins are wire as diagramed. In Proma test mode and Mach-Diagnostic the Torch ON-UP-DOWN LEDs are simultaneously all ON or all off depending on active low or high. The LEDs don't change with the proma. I have the Proma wired to pins 10,11 and 12 on the BOB.

Please help. I've watched every youtube video I can find.
