Safety Notice and Recall of Fluke BC1735/EELV Power Adapter

July 25th, 2014

Dear Fluke Customer:

Fluke is voluntarily recalling certain BC1735/EELV Power Adapters which are used with the Fluke-1735 Power Logger. Fluke has determined that in some cases the housing fastening points of the BC1735/EELV Power Adapters shipped between 04/01/2014 and 06/24/2014 may be loose, which may lead to separation of the housing. This risk could result in electrical shock which may cause serious injury.

All BC1735/EELV Power Adapter models with the date code stamp 03140 are affected by this recall. If your power adapter date code has an “N” in front of it (N03140), your adapter has been reworked and is NOT part of the recall.
