Eaton has issued a product safety bulletin relating to a potential operational nonconformance with certain Eaton Heavy Duty 30A and 60A Safety Switches, intended for use in heavy commercial, utility and industrial applications.
A nonconforming safety switch can potentially supply power when the handle is in the “off” position, subjecting the operator of the switch or any downstream equipment to risk of serious bodily injury or death. Eaton is not aware of any injuries at this time resulting from this issue.
The safety switches affected by the potential nonconformance were manufactured between November 19, 2015 and January 23, 2018, and primarily sold in the U.S. and Canada.
Please visit www.eaton.com/hdss-advisorybulletin to obtain detailed information related to this recall and refer any questions from customers or other parties concerned their switch may be defective to HdssAdvisoryBulletin@eaton.com, or Eaton’s Technical Resource Center at 1-877- ETN-CARE for assistance.
