What do some Complete Vario Switch kits have black out of the UL marking?

UL 508 changed to prevent load-break switches from being used as motor disconnect switches. In the interpretation of this change, UL in France (where this product is manufactured) believes that if the switch is not a motor disconnect, it cannot have a lockable handle. The Vario is not a motor disconnect, so the UL mark was taken off. Devices manufactured during that interpretation of the code have the UL mark blacked out

This issue has been resolved and the UL mark has been placed back on the devices.
