Hazard Involved:  Siemens AG has issued a safety related product recall involving the SIMATIC ET 200SP System, Model No. 6ES7 132-6FD00-0CU0 manufactured from February 9, 2018 - January 23, 2020. 

This recall is due to the creepage and clearance spacings not meeting the requirements of standards when used in altitudes between 2,000 and 3,000 meters. Dielectric testing at higher voltages has resulted in arcing, which when installed in a Division 2 or Zone 2 Hazardous Location can result in explosion. Modules manufactured after February 20, 2020 have the spacings on the PCB corrected and meet the requirements of the Nonincendive and Ordinary Location standards. 

Please read the attached for a complete description of the potential hazard and any actions that must be taken by end users of these products.  The attached notice was sent to all customers who have units covered under this product safety notification.


If you suspect you are in possession of the affected equipment listed above, bearing the FM Approvals certification marking, please bring that to the attention of:
