Product description

HP Modular power distribution units used primarily in HP rack systems, but also sold separately and able to be installed in racks from other vendors. The units have part numbers: E7670A; E7671A; E7672A; E7674A.

What are the defects?

The safety ground within some units could become detached; this risk could increase over time due to stress from environmental conditions. Without proper grounding there is a possibility that a person could be exposed to high than expected levels of leakage.

What are the hazards?

Electric Shock.

What should consumers do?

HP will contact all customers by phone, letter and/or direct visit to schedule a service call to inspect and, if affected , fit a supplemental grounding kit as a temporary solution to address the issue. The unit will then be replaced free of charge.
