Peco Smartfrog recall

Received from Peco today:

IMPORTANT  SAFETY WARNING

SMARTFROG – VERSION 5

Model – PLS-130

pls

      

 

We have become aware that the Smartfrog version 5, sold between 15th December 2015 and 30th June 2016 has a manufacturing defect.

When the Smartfrog is connected for use on a DCC-operated layout, there is a risk that should the track power supply be switched on before the 12vDC supply to the Smartfrog itself, the Smartfrog unit will overheat, and in the worst case scenario catch fire.

If you have purchased a Smartfrog unit, please check which version you own.

The model affected is only the version 5, and this is identifiable by a blue outer casing which clearly tells you the version. Version 4 is not affected.

If you have a Smartfrog version 5, please return it to the retailer it was purchased from immediately for a replacement version 4, or full refund.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact the Peco Sales Team on

(OO44) 01297 21542

We wish to thank you for your co-operation and apologise for any inconvenience.
