Tell me about it! My UPS went literally ape shit this morning forcing me to shut down grid power and go full solar mode. I saw a horrible modified sine wave, it looked jagged with the tops cut off. Keeping my oscilloscope hooked up to mains I saw the shift's and knew it wasn't good, patting myself on the back knowing I did good by DXing the mains from the home.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
