    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

    Bill,

    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.
