WESTRONICS CSVC VIDEOGRAPHIC RECORDERS

On or about November 3, 2000, Westronics determined that Westronics Series CSVC "Smartview" Nuclear Safety Related videographic recorders, if utilized to measure thermocouple inputs, require hardware modification to ensure accurate measurement. The hardware modification requires installation of capacitors associated with the Dallas 1620 Temperature Compensation Chips. Instruments which would require the modification were shipped between July 16, 1998 and July 7, 2000. Nuclear Power Plants affected are Riverbend, Shearon Harris, and Brunswick.

Westronics Corrective Action includes installation of the capacitors.

Affected Customers will be notified in accordance with the requirements of 10CFR21.
