  • This Eaton company sounds like real douchebags to me. Their product caught on fire because their stupid design and they whine about the electrician? It's like Ford put on the manual "remember to remove the dynamite from under the hood before starting the engine." Why you put that there in the first place? And sounds like it wasn't cheap either so there is no excuse. We'll thats one company that i will never advice anyone to use.

Hey Linus, Pro Tip: don't yank the cables, they have a header where you unplug from, it's called not wearing and tearing, it's about caring for the stuff so the stuff can take care of you. The questions: 1) How many times an UPS, specially big ones, have save you work/time? Not really, if ever. 2) How much $/day that insurance worth? a lot, for their little usefulness. 3) Was the UPS worth it? No. 4) You feel it's a rip off? Absolutely. How about you?

  • I oversee quite a bit of large CNC machine installs. It extremely important to have the manufacturer give their approval before the machine is turned on. Also, its extremely important to have a third part installer ensure the work is done correctly to the manuals. That way the manufacture cannot blame the installer if the machine breaks later down the line. Faulty design or not, put the work on the manufacturer to keep your hands clean.
