That looks OK. I have tried dozens of control schemes over the years. With one setup using Mach3 I was getting occasional false steps when the laser was fired. I put the laser power supply on a metal shelf above the rest of the electronics.

Here is a really old picture I took when testing the Mach3 version. I use DSP now, but I left the shelf in place. I have an extrusion along the right edge of the shelf now.
