Product description
Risk
This product poses a risk of fire and electric shock because: - the pins of the halogen lamp plug are accessible when the lamp fitting is plugged in and they become active; - the insulating tape covering the accessible connection terminals is conductive; - the basic-insulated leads are accessible when water is being poured in (therefore no protection class); - the light fitting is designed for a maximum of 50 volts. However, the connection is made using 230 volts; - the power plug dimensions do not conform to DIN VDE 0620-1, No 9.1; - there is a protective conductor in the mains lead, but it is not connected; - there is no standard-compliant tension relief device for the mains lead; - leaky water containers and cord switch are not protected against water getting in; - the cross-section of the mains lead is too narrow; - the switch has no tension relief device; - the protective conductor is connected as the neutral conductor; - the switch can easily be opened without tools, making live parts accessible; - the mains lead is not permanently attached (just twisted). This product does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive and the relevant European standards.
