I forgot to respond to you Jazz, apologies (rude when you are trying to help!)
I do have one solution to this. . . . control box out the window. Done.
The only board I can recommend which you can buy in UK is this one. I've used many without problems, infact I'm installing one at this moment along with AM882 drives.

You can use BOB's On board relays to control VFD start/stop signals. To be honest I don't often bother with spindle speed control and just control Start/stop.
I also use the relay built into VFD to control water pump so it's only running when spindle spinning.!
FYI, just tried the board on my Gekko setup and it works fine.
I have spotted something that might make a difference though - so I will try it out and update accordingly. . . . .
bugger. it didn't work. Sod it, I'm going to buy another board.

Boom. Ordered a board from DiyCNC - out of stock. In comes Mr. Jazz to the rescue, sends me his spare (or next builds board). Realised it was out of stock thursday, Mr Jazz sends Friday, received on saturday and 90% wired on Sunday.
Board works a treat - I still don't know what was wrong with the ZP5A as it is working fine on my other machine (Gekko 203V) but this has dealt with the problem.
Thanks to all that waded in to help - particularly JAZZCNC you bloody legend.
Your Welcome, Cheap BOB's are just not worth the stress and hair loss. . Lol . . . Pleased your sorted and working.
PS: Money received thanks.!!
