Default digital router lift display gone beserk

I just bought a 1617evs router for my Woodpecker Quick Lift router lift with a digital height sensor and display installed. When I turn on the router, the display goes nuts. I am guessing EMF interference. I also turned the router near my digital display (Wixey) on my saw table, and it also goes nuts. What can I do?

Hi Bill

You may need to run a ground wire from the unit to the router frame, you will see a post on the forum about that..

I have returned the IGaging sensor and display.
I have purchased and installed the Wixey router display.
It is solid when the router runs but the display changes when I turn on the router about 1 in 10 times.
I contacted Barry Wixey and Bosch for guidance as well. I have a number of his products and they have all been first rate.
He was very generous with information and suggestions.

His first suggestion was to ground the router motor which helped a little.

2nd I installed plastic 8-32 bolts, nuts and washers to isolate the sensor from the router/lift and ground.

I applied power to the router without the ground connected. The display is rock solid running as well as power cycling.
I then added ground, and the display is still rock solid.
I will leave the ground connected anyway though it appears to be unneeded.
I verified ground from the router to the power outlet box with my volt/ohmmeter.
Incidentally, my first connection with ground wire was to the top plate (metal) of the router lift. Ohmmeter showed I had about 200 ohms resistance to the router motor thru the lift and lift top plate.
I moved the connection to the lift yoke surrounding the router motor and verified zero ohms all the way back to the power outlet box.

I've attached some pics of the router lift install.

Hey Bill...

I know what your talking about. I had issues with my Wixey display. My problem was the darn thing would turn itself on everytime I started my router. I contacted Wixey and they were more than helpfull with advise. Saying this is a known issue in some applications. They were not "exactly" sure why,, but did offer advise. Most of which you covered. I've included for anyone following this thread the photo of Wixey's
suggested "fix"..

????

well heck?? can't seem to download it from this side. anyways.. here's the thread, the picture is on Page 9...
