    For those interested - this was a three phase 480Volt 1,000 amp automatic transfer switch that had a catastrophic failure when attempting from generator to utility power.

    Luckily the data center never lost power, the 1MegaWatt Cummins Turbo Diesel generator just kept humming along until the problem could be fixed.

    Go CUMMINS!
