I don't know which type the OP is dealing with. Do you? Considering that I
don't know, was it a crime to suggest that he investigate further before
continuing with his project?
Even more important: Why do you take it personally when I posted my
You believe he stated that? Go back & read it again. For those of us not
familiar with transformers in general, there is no clue as to whether it
contained liquid. But never mind. You may *think* it's a problem that I
suggested he proceed with caution, but in fact, it was *not* a problem. You
just needed to be heard.
YOU just needed to read his original post. He stated it pretty clear he was
looking at laminations and windings and paper. If it even remotely was a oil
filled transformer, it was a little late for that.
And as I pointed out, I don't know enough for "laminations and windings" to
mean anything at that point in the discussion. My goal was to get him to
slow down and wait for a little more input from others. You don't really
have a problem with that, do you?
He doesn't need to "Slow Down", you need to keep up with the thread, and
read what the OP stated in the first place, and COMPREHEND what he wrote.
The rest of us certainly understood what he stated, and your whole PCB
thing was just "Off the Wall" because it was obvious to the rest of the
UNIVERSE, that he had a dry transformer..............
Mine was the 2nd post in the discussion, so there WAS no thread to keep up
with. Is that clear, or do you need a diagram?
As far as comprehending what he wrote, if I knew enough to extrapolate from
his description, I would not have asked my question. However, as it turned
out, it seems there *are* some parts in his UPS that may require careful
handling due to PCBs.
But still what???? You just can't get your mind around the issue that
you posted comments that had NO Bearing on the OP's question........
No PCB's anywhere in the stated unit. The UNIVERSE knew this before the
first reply post happened. Apparently you did not, but posted your lack
of knowledge anyway......
The OP is aware of something he knew less about before this thread. There is
nothing wrong with knowledge.
In the 1980s, there was a cartoonist named Kliban, sort of a predecessor of
Gary Larson (Far Side). In one of his cartoons, there's a Neanderthal sort
of creature using a long stick to open a book from a distance, as if he's
afraid it might bite him. Sounds like you.
I took apart a large transformer some time ago. I don't know if it contained any PCB.
If it did, it was in solid form. The reason that I took it apart was that I couldn't
get it to transform from the cyborg to the jet plane. :-)
Yes, I do know which type the OP has, and it IS a DRY type, and always
has been. It doesn't take a Rocket Scientist to figure out these things,
even without hours, and hours, of DIRECT experience with ferroUPS
equipment. If you don't know, just keep quiet, and the rest of the
world, won't know, that you don't know. but if youinsist on opening
your mouth, or typing out of your brain, you leave no doubt, that you
