We can have no progress without change, whether it be basketball or anything else.

-John Wooden
Greetings Everyone,

To say that it has been a tumultuous year so far is an understatement. We're all facing challenges and changes. Luckily a lot of changes are positive! This month ROMAC is introducing our new national sales manager and expanding our eCommerce product offerings at breaker.com and eBay. We're also going to show off our finished 38kV switchgear project. There's a lot of good things happening at ROMAC, and we want to share them with you.

P.S. Don't miss out on helping the students and advisors of SME (Society of Manufacturing Engineers) Chapter S379 with Covid-19 relief efforts--see the article later in the newsletter.

Enjoy the Hotwire!

Switchgear at the 38kV Scale
The Challenge of Building BIG
Last month we showed you some pictures of our latest 38kV switchgear lineup under construction. PCI is proud to present you with the finished product! Not all switchgear manufacturers are willing or able to take on the challenges of building a 38kV lineup in an expedited timeframe; however, at PCI, we have the expertise and facilities to get the big projects done.
Front View of Our 38kV Lineup
Built for a Large Utility
This PCI 38kV lineup is being shipped to a large utility to be attached to a green power application. The lineup features:

  • Silver Plated Copper Conductor
  • A Structural Steel Base
  • Utility Metering Section
  • S&C Power Fusing
  • Easily Accessible Pull Section
  • NEMA 3R Rating - Sloped Roof
The Size of a Small Building
The four sections in this enormous lineup take up almost 2000 cubic feet, it's over ten feet tall, and weighs nearly ten tons.
Impressive Voltage Transformers
They look like something from Frankenstein's laboratory, but they're really voltage transformers (PT) that step 34,500 volts down to 120 volts. The transformer features:

  • All Aluminum Conductor
  • Drain and Sample Valve
  • Dial-Type Thermometer
  • Liquid Level Gauge
  • Pressure Vacuum Gauge
  • Pressure Relief Valve
  • Electrostatic Shield
PCI is here for you, whatever the size or configuration of your particular project. Find out what we can build for you today.

The current student members of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) Chapter S379 are using their design and fabrication skills to produce 3D printed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to help combat the current global pandemic. They are printing ear guards and face masks that will be donated to local first responders, essential workers, hospital staff, and retirement home staff.

Their goal is to manufacture  800 items of PPE  for those on the front lines of the Covid-19 battle. To help meet their goal, they have set up a modest gofundme page to raise $1000. Even if you can't help them with a monetary contribution, you can still help out by sharing their gofundme page with your family, friends, and networks. Please take a look at the 3D Printed PPE for Covid-19 Relief gofundme page and support their efforts.
