Also if it just came on check your grounds a loose wire can cause all sorts of havoc

Thanks Mark4!
I looked into switching to 24v signals at your suggestion and it looks like that's probably a good idea. Those MB3 boards do look like an improvement from what I am using, but I think first I'll try using a 24v to 5v optocoupler on the problematic inputs and see if that helps. (the price really adds up for those MB3s for a lot of machines)  If anyone has any opinions about that I'm all ears.
I don't know what a contractor box is, but I think I get the idea. I'm sure I could improve on the wiring going into the machines. It is all very neat and professional looking from a physical standpoint, but from a noise avoidance standpoint maybe not so much.

I think he meant "contactor", not contractor.
Spell check gets it wrong all the time.

We never have the time or money to do it right the first time, but we somehow manage to do it twice and then spend the money to get it right.
