    A dairy farm’s robotic milking equipment suddenly stopped working.

    A power surge was suspected, but no evidence of an equipment breakdown was found in any of the electrical boards.

    After replacing multiple smart meter boards, touch point controls, and the smart controller, the system became operational again. The breakdown did not affect power supplies or wiring.

    Total loss: $30,000 property damage.
