    I sure wish Trane would start up their big orange pumpkin factory again. Only they can forget the Rotolocks this time. I've always hated the Rotolocks.

    Rotolocks are so a plumber can change a compressor.

    No,bud. You can do some googling, as I saw a video years ago that the Trane regional manager showed us. It was eye opening. Compressor windings go through hell under full load operation!

    I just Google slow motion video of motor windings. You may find that interesting

    It really opened my mind on what motor windings go through. Made me appreciate what happens when you slam 247v on an inductive load.

    That initial start pulse is a *****! Now I understand why Trane encapsulates windings...

    At the factory test stand, large hp centrifugal units can make the loose power leads dance.

    After what I have witnessed, I don't doubt it. Put enough energy into stuff, and weird stuff happens.

    Not just motors. In the AF I was ground crew. We had a big power supply called an MD3.
    It supplied both AC & DC. It had it's own motor driving the generators and alternators at 400 cps.
    When hooked up to the airplane and switching the DC on line, the big cables would jump.
    I don't know the size but a guess might be 1" dia. What's that about 250 kcmil.
    Give me a relay with big enough contacts, and I'll run the world!

    You can be anything you want......As long as you don't suck at it.

    If a person wants to create a machine that will be more likely to fail...Make it complicated.

    I like Rotolocks. I didn't need to bring the torches out. Just a big wrench.
    Actually often the torches were needed anyway. Those locks can be $itchy.
