Legrand® Adds First UL-Listed Snap-in Mounting Accessory to its Wattstopper® High Bay Occupancy Sensors
San Jose, CA, March 7, 2017 – Legrand, North America today announced that its Wattstopper High Bay Passive Infrared (PIR) occupancy sensors feature the first ever Underwriters Laboratory (UL) listed snap-in mounting accessory. The snap-in design, now standard on all HBP-100 Series installation products as well as the extender modules, allows for quicker and safer installation. These sensors help facility managers avoid down time and help contractors meet project deadlines while maintaining safety standards.
Meeting the UL 916 Standard for Energy Management
The HBP-100 series sensors passed one of the most significant tests for this type of product design called the UL Conduit Nipple Strength Test for Non-Metallic Enclosures, which requires products to withstand a 5 ft-lb impact without cracking the enclosure or separating the sensor from the fixture.
Products with this UL rating ensure reliability and safety of people and property, reducing the likelihood of injury from electrical shock or fire and damage to fixtures or electrical box-mounted controls. Many Wattstopper products, including the line of BZ power packs and FSP fixture integrated sensors, have passed this test.
“Safety and security are top of mind for those involved in building design and construction. While other manufacturers have offered occupancy sensors with snap-in mounting features, the new HBP-100 series sensor is the first that is UL-listed in the market,” said Daniel Stankovich, Product Manager for Wattstopper at Legrand.
