Risk
This product poses a risk of electric shock because: - all four remote-controlled dimmers measured had, as supplied, an excessively wide gap between the earth contacts (between 29.4 mm and 30.7 mm). If this gap is too wide, a safe contact between connected appliances and the protective conductor is not ensured; - there is no indication of rated current. This product poses a risk of fire because when a test current of 20 amperes was connected to a product for the load test, there was an increase in temperature of more then 56°K. A short-circuit occurred on the printed-circuit board. This product does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive and the R&TTE Directive.
