    What wrong with this place?
    I got a call from a good friend of mine who works in the hospital.
    It seems the last blackout shook some operating tables

    It's time to fix this baby......I admit that I have been looking forward to this day.

    A General Electrical UPS Powering the essential equipments in the hospital which died couple of years ago.




    It ain't working after faulting the IGBT's modules during the last power outage. It seems that some one switched it on when the power was down. Blew the Battery fuse together with the power drivers.
    The modules were replaced then but nobody could get it running again.
    Once more, another has cross the path of the inevitable.

    I have to give 'em a quotation first and then sign some agreements.
    Will show U updates as work progresses.

    No document is available from them. It's GE SitePro 35KW UPS.
    Any info if any one has is much appreciated.

    Just out of curiosity.... How does Paradise :))) get power? Powerline on the sea bottom, solar paneles or ... nuclear plant... I've been on Google Earth, but all I see is a long island, lots of houses and an airport...

    How about the IGBT gate drivers and the control circuitry?

    Rifaa, I would get digital video.

    That is 30 photos a second if you needed to pull one out.

    Your still camera can probably shoot video, but you will want HD so you can use the video as hi-res photos.

    I use a camera Im quite impressed with. Especially macro work.

    The Sanyo Xacti HD.

    You can get NICE AND CLOSE and the video is SUPER CRISP.

    Here is an example of my Function key on my keyboard that got hit by my soldering iron ;)

    Its 3648x2736 pixels. I scaled it to 800x600 for the forum.
    Is is unfortunate that it converted the pic to JPG, but you can still see the quality.
