Featured Expert of the Month - Mike True Mike is a Sr. Field Evaluation Inspector at TÜV Rheinland with over 20 years of experience in the electrical industry. A state of Florida certified master electrician, Mike has worked extensively in the field, both as an electric company owner/operator and engineering/designing for electrical, commercial and industrial projects. He is well versed in local, state and federal codes. He is also a long-time member of the International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI), serving as the current Central Florida Division President. One of Mike’s most interesting recent projects was evaluating Cobra’s Curse Spin Coaster equipment at Busch Gardens in Tampa, FL. Evaluation of the control cabinets of the coaster are necessary for the control of the ride. Therefore, the following needed to be evaluated: 3-MCCs (motor control centers), OCCs (operator control cabinets, located around the ride course, 4-Station OCCs, and the moving walkway control cabinet. Some technical challenges for this inspection included separation of circuits and installation of cables in the PowerTrack. Among the motors controlled are motors for the moving walkways, which facilitate loading and unloading by moving at the same speed as the coaster cars. The train of coaster cars then moves forward onto a lift that raises the train 70 feet into the air. MCC2, located at the top of the lift, is 100 feet above grade. The cars have batteries that will activate an onboard motor to orientate the car and enhance the experience or align the train to enter the station for unloading and loading. Each train spins randomly, with frequency and direction determined by the rider weight distribution. During the three and a half minute ride, the coaster train achieves 40 mph down the 2,100-foot serpentine-like track, traveling backward, forward and then spinning freely. No two rides are alike!
