CSA International, Basler Electric Co. and Lutron Electronics Announce Voluntary Recall of Power Supply Units

June 8, 2004

CSA International, in cooperation with Basler Electric Co., of Highland, Illinois has announced a voluntary recall of approximately 3,000 DC power supply units. If overloaded, the power supply can overheat, posing a potential for a fire hazard to consumers.

Basler has received two reports of the power supply case overheating and melting. There have been no reports of injuries.

The 12-Volt DC power supply units affected by the recall were sold as an accessory power supply device for some of Lutron Electronic’s wall stations and control interfaces, including some Grafik Eye 3000 lighting control systems. These systems were professionally installed in indoor commercial and residential settings for lighting and dimmer control applications. The affected power supply enclosures are black plastic with “Basler Electric”, “MADE IN MEXICO” and the model number “BE29736001” imprinted on the plug side. On the opposite side is a blue and white Lutron label with the number “GRX-12VDC”. Lutron’s Grafik Eye 3000 lighting system is NOT part of the recall.

Lutron sold these power supply devices to electrical distributors and contractors for use with lighting systems from January 1999 through March 2004.

Consumers should contact Lutron Electronics to receive a free replacement power supply unit at
(800) 523-9466 anytime, or send an e-mail to [email protected].
