I read in sci.electronics.design that firstname.lastname@example.org wrote (in

Switch', on Tue, 26 Nov 2002:

A 10 000 A switch isn't electronics, it's civil engineering. (;-)
Do you seriously think that even s.e.d is the right place to get advice
on such a project? You need to go to major high-power electrical
engineering equipment manufacturers.
