Reason/Issue Haag Streit has identified a potential issue with the slide-in adaptor plug for the Perkins MkIII Tonometer charger. An incident was reported to Haag-Streit where the use of the Adaptor tripped a customer’s circuit breaker. Upon investigation it was found the adaptor contained an electrical fault. This electrical fault has the potential to cause arcing within the adaptor, which poses a potential fire hazard. The risk when using the adaptor is most apparent if the adaptor is used in an un-fused circuit. The risk of harm and damage can be reduced if the unit is plugged into a conforming power outlet with a circuit breaker.
