Interesting. Noise makes sense as I can get the M110 code run without the SS hooked up and I can run the M110 without the estop triggering at the end.

So it only does it with the relay actually activating and un-activating...

Does your SS still have the small Cap and Resistor at the side of the USB socket, see here. http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,16386.0.html

Yes, I bet it does. I have a SS thats 3 years old, and I have not done that modification.

It might help then. I have 4 SS's on machines (one is the beta board) and I only   had random issues on the one machine, I removed the cap and res from it and it has behaved ever since.

I busted off both of those items and cut the trace and I still get the estop.

put the estop at 1.43 and it stoped the estop being triggered upon relay releasing, however, mach now "stops responding"...

The relay deactivating with any noise filtering setting for the estop will cause the "init" initilatization led to stop flashing on the SS... so it looks like I either get an estop triggered, or I loose SS communication. *********.

Changed my estop active settings and went to 1.43 noise filtering and Voila! I can run MDI M110 and not get estop or loss of SS communication!

Well, I tried everything that I could think of. I even tried grounding the solenoid to the BOB, the lathe itself 15ft away from the BOB and having it not grounded at all.

Seems that it might not be feedback from the solenoid. I think that yo may be right about the relay being too close to everything else.
