at least they labeled it
not sure I follow. I have a couple of RF drying tunnels where half the equipment on the inner envelope is at potential. In mechanics, once you remove a gaurd, you are exposed.
The sign says the heatsink is electrically hot, either 120VAC or 240VAC. Touch this you die type sign.
This is what is named a hot chasie. Quite typical in older TV sets or data montitors using CRT
It is connected to the power line. I see the tie-wrap holding the zip cord.
I would measure it before touching it though ... because ... the butt I save may be my own and I'm not sure if the CPR qualifications are current for people in the immediate area.
Such a connection requires the unit be plugged into an isolation transformer before performing service.
Just needs a few more warning stickers:
"This device not intended to regrow hair"
"Not intended for human consumption"
Warning stickers don't help those already nominated for the Darwin award.
