– Description –
An anomaly exists with a small quantity of Trusted T8311C Expander Interface modules. Nine modules were manufactured and released with 2 Amp fuses instead of the required 3 Amp fuses. Modules may operate correctly for a short period of time but are expected to eventually experience internal slice faults. Modules where both slices experience this anomaly will execute a safe shutdown.
Fuses are located internal to the module and are not field replaceable. Affected modules must be returned for repair or replacement.
– Temporary Workarounds –
No temporary workarounds are available. Follow the guidance in the Correction section of this document.
