Syracuse, NY, April 16, 2009 — Pass & Seymour/Legrand (P&S), a leading provider of electrical wiring devices and home systems, announces a major addition to its PlugTail™ wiring devices, which literally takes safety and convenience from the receptacle up to the switch. P&S PlugTail™ Switches, with single-pole and 3-way options, allow contractors to move more complex tasks to the front of the project and optimize total installed cost at the opening.
P&S PlugTail Switches help commercial contractors be more competitive on wiring device projects while offering facilities a safer, more convenient solution. Simply connect the pre-stripped P&S PlugTail Switch connector leads. Available in toggle and Decorator platforms, the Switch connector has three-wire solutions for single-pole, and four-wire solutions for 3-way applications. It’s easier than pigtailing, doesn’t require a wire caddy, and the polybag keeps the connector free of dirt, dust and joint compound until trim-out.
At device installation just click in the connector, and tighten the mounting screws. It takes less than a minute – three times faster than a conventional device installation – and with consistent connections every time. This saves time at the end of the project, when every minute counts.
“With PlugTail Switches, P&S has the most complete wiring device family, including spec and hospital grade receptacles, G-F-C-Is and tamper-resistant receptacles,” said Scott Bausch, Marketing Manager – Commercial and Industrial Products. “Since 2004, millions of P&S PlugTail devices have allowed contractors to provide superior installations for all types of facilities.”
The wiring device family offers the fastest, most consistent, most reliable installation solutions for any commercial job, including hospitals, colleges and universities, offices, retail and entertainment venues, and hospitality and multi-dwelling facilities. The Switches add 120 new SKUs, all meeting Federal Specification requirements.
P&S PlugTail™ is a patent approved product by Pass & Seymour Legrand.
