P&S Adds Three New Dimmers


Syracuse, NY, October 20, 2008 — Pass & Seymour/Legrand (P&S), a leading manufacturer of electrical wiring devices and home systems, announces the addition of three new products to its LS Series of lighting and fan speed controls. The new products include the Decorator Slide Dual Dimmer, Decorator Preset Dimmer with Independent Switch, and the Preset Single Pole 3-way Dual Fan Speed/Dimmer.

The LS Series Dual Dimmer features two 300-watt, single pole, slide-to-off dimmers and installs in a single gang box. The Preset Dimmer with Independent Switch comes with single pole/3-way preset dimmer and single pole/3-way switch functions. The Dual Fan Speed/Dimmer combines a single pole/3-way preset dimmer and a single pole/3-way preset de-hummer fan speed control.

All of the new controls feature an optional locator light by installing a Trade Master Snap-In Light Module. The dimmers do not de-rate when ganged, with no break away fins. This offers more convenient installation for contractors.

“The new lighting controls continue to strengthen P&S as a provider of quality wall box dimmers, timers and sensors for the electrical contractor, builder, and owner,” said Mike Piraino, lighting controls market development manager for P&S. “We’re especially proud of the fact that P&S continues to introduce innovative green control products that are meeting customers desire to reduce demand and save energy.”

All new dimmers are available in white, ivory, light almond, black and brown.
