Legrand/Pass & Seymour Wins Award in Lighting for Tomorrow Competition


SYRACUSE, N.Y. (Oct. 13, 2010) – Legrand/Pass & Seymour (P&S), a leading provider of electrical wiring devices and home systems, was recognized by the Consortium for Energy Efficiency through the 2010 Lighting for Tomorrow awards competition. The program recognizes marketing excellence and creativity within the electrical industry.

Legrand/Pass & Seymour earned the award for its Pushbutton Pre-Set Timer. The CEE hosted the award ceremony at the Encore Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nev., coinciding with the American Lighting Association Conference.

“We’re honored by this recognition and grateful to everyone involved in the development and engineering of the pushbutton pre-set timer,” said Pat Davin, Vice President and General Manager at Legrand/Pass & Seymour. “Energy-efficient product offerings represent a major focus area for Legrand, and this award demonstrates our ability to make quality lighting and fan controls that are both stylish and good for the environment.”

The Pushbutton Pre-Set Timer allows users to program how long a fan should run, providing six different time intervals for automatic shut-off. Users can still turn the fan on and off manually too. An LED indicator light displays the chosen time setting.
