We had a loader operator flip one of our newer Innovative-IDM panels off of a semi truck a few days ago.  Can you send me a quote for a complete set of VFD’s and a recommendation that we change them out due to the shock that they would have incurred while being knocked off of a semi truck?

BTW you should be very proud of how well this panel held up.  I have seen a lot of panels dropped in the past few years and none of them came away with anywhere near this minimal amount of damage.
