Please keep us posted on this. I shipped my units back surface mail a
week ago so it will be about another 5 or so before the factory gets
them. It is probable that only one will show signs of defects but I
have specified that they test them at full rated voltage, 120 PPS into
a 10uH inductance for at least 3 runs of 2 minutes per run. I also
asked them to run even more rigorous tests if they have such
procedures. I'll be very surprised if such testing doesn't show any
In the end, pragmatism prevailed. I had to send them back or risk
losing a huge amount of money.
