24 May 2012


The product poses a risk of electric shock because:

  • Creepage distances between “live” and “accessible” printed tracks are not sufficient.
  • Insulation between the primary and secondary windings of the transformer is not equivalent to reinforced insulation.
  • Creepage distances between primary and secondary windings are not sufficient.
  • It does not have sufficient mechanical strength and the pins can break.

The product does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive (LVD) and the relevant European standard EN 60950.
