We are doing our best to constantly improve the quality and reliability of our products. However, some electric items/components do in fact fail despite our efforts. The durability of products also varies depending on service environments and conditions. Please check your product under actual service conditions before use. If you continue to use a product in a poor condition, items with deteriorated insulation performance may generate abnormal heat or smoke or even ignite. The product's failure or end of service life may cause accidents involving risks to human health, fire, or danger to the public at large. We advise you to apply safety measures and regular maintenance work, such as the use of redundant design, fireproofing, and malfunction-preventing design, to rule out such accidents.
