I'll take the big, old, noisy, low tech ones any day.
One little relay failed here, and it wiped out everything above it.
I must say though, they're so nice and compact, and sooo modern

Hi Scott,
I believe that is what they call a "Destructive Failure".
Was it caused by a stuck contact or a burning relay coil?.
There's been some heat in there!.
