Safety switches can potentially supply power when the handle is in the “off” position
Power management company Eaton has issued a product safety bulletin for certain Eaton Heavy Duty 30A and 60A Safety Switches intended for use in heavy commercial, utility, and industrial applications.
The safety switches referenced in the bulletin 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. The company is not aware of any injuries at this time resulting from this issue,
The safety switches affected by the potential nonconformance were manufactured between Nov. 19, 2015, and Jan. 23, 2018, and primarily sold in the United States and Canada.
