  • Causa
    Ortho is providing information regarding the potential for four wires connected to the power supply to have been misconfigured within vitros 5600 system(s) during manufacturing. the electrical wires are located in an area that is intended to be accessed only by an ortho-trained service representative. normal use, maintenance and troubleshooting on vitros 5600 system will not expose an operator to electrical hazards as a result of this issue.If a system has the incorrect wire configuration, it is possible that if the power to an individual module is intended to be shut off, it will remain on. however, there is no risk to ortho-trained service personnel if they follow normal procedures and power off the appropriate module or the vitros 5600 system as a whole prior to working on a component.
