Legrand/Pass & Seymour PlugTail™ Sensors Combine Energy Savings and Speedy Installation for Optimal Productivity

SYRACUSE, N.Y., October 23, 2011 – Legrand/Pass & Seymour (P&S), a leading provider of electrical wiring devices and home systems, announces its latest innovation in PlugTail™ wiring devices – the P&S PlugTail Sensor. These devices help contractors be more competitive on projects while offering facilities a safer, energy-efficient solution.

P&S PlugTail Sensors offer an energy-saving solution that meets today’s efficiency standards, with the same speed and consistency as any P&S PlugTail device. Simply connect the pre-stripped P&S PlugTail Sensor connector leads. It’s easier than traditional 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.

“P&S takes pride in offering the most complete line of factory-terminated wiring devices, including spec and hospital grade receptacles, G-F-C-Is and tamper-resistant receptacles,” said Steve Rood, Marketing Manager – Commercial and Industrial Products. “Now we’re offering the benefit of energy-saving devices, to meet growing efficiency needs and make it an easy upgrade to any facility.”

The P&S PlugTail wiring device family provides the fastest, most consistent, most reliable installation solutions for hospitals, colleges and universities, offices, retail and entertainment venues, and hospitality and multi-dwelling facilities. All P&S PlugTail devices meet Federal Specification requirements and are trade agreement compliant.

P&S PlugTail™ is a patent approved product by Legrand/Pass & Seymour.
