NO RATINGS
A fire control panel was not working and I was tasked with fixing it. I discovered that a large mechanical relay was throwing off some energy. In my experiments to discover how much, I ended up routinely disconnecting my mouse and resetting my PC with the relay's discharge.

I added the proper relay suppression system, and the panel work perfectly after.

Unfortunately, I was a victim of the afterthought.
