Free Webinar: Investigation into Counterfeits

Sep 14, 2018

EC Eaton Webinar Promo3In the electrical industry, counterfeits are estimated to be a multi-million-dollar problem. From circuit breakers that do not trip when they should to batteries without vents for built-up gases to grounding rods with only a fraction of the required copper coating, counterfeit electrical products fail to meet standards and pose risks of injury and even death. Furthermore, contractors may be liable if they install a counterfeit product, and for years, manufacturers have considered contractors the men and women on the front lines in the battle against counterfeiters.

On Sept. 19 at 2 p.m. EDT, join ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR and Eaton in an investigation of counterfeit electrical products.

Attendees will learn how to quickly identify at-risk and suspect packaging, extraneous marks and labeling, product modifications, and how counterfeit products are sold. Attendees will also learn how today’s technology is being used to help contractors easily detect counterfeits in the marketplace, along with intuitive digital tools to assist contractors in the field.
