Subject: 10CFR Part 21 Notification, Westronics Model 1200BC Recorders
This letter is a notification of a defect associated with Westronics 1200BC recorders built under the Westronics 10CFR 50 Appendix B Program.
On or about November 11, 1999 Westronics determined that five Westronics Series 1200B Commercial Grade recorders caused a short to ground upon installation at Grand Gulf Station Unit 2. Further investigation revealed that the harness assembly drawing for DC power input (Westronics Part # HN 101168) could have been mis-interpreted regarding wire color coding/pin location during harness assembly, thereby resulting in a power to chassis ground short. Inspection of DC Power Input Wiring Harnesses for 1200B recorders revealed that of approximately 135 harnesses in stock, 118 were wired incorrectly.
There have been no reported field failures of Westronics series 1200B Safety Related recorders. Although the anomaly has been identified in Commercial Grade Recorders only, three Westronics 1200BC Safety Related Recorders installed at the following locations could be affected:
|Customer/Installed Location||Serial Number||Date Shipped|
|Entergy/River Bend Station||121BC7042||07/01/98|
|The Illuminating Co. Perry Station||122BC7047
