Risk
The products pose a risk of burns and electric shock because: ·         The cross section area of the external wires is not sufficient and the wires could consequently overheat. ·         The wire ends soldered to the terminals of the control unit are not adequately protected against pulling and twisting and live metal parts could consequently become accessible. ·         The insulation resistance is not sufficient. The products do not comply with the Low Voltage Directive (LVD) and the relevant European standard EN 60598.
