SANTA CLARA, Calif. April 3, 2014 - WattStopper has launched an innovative line of optional neutral occupancy sensors that let installers decide whether or not they need a neutral after they purchase a wall switch product. Because the sensors work for two-wire or three-wire applications, one device is compatible with 2011 NEC requirements and with existing wiring. Unlike competitive products, they require no special configuration, saving time for contractors, preventing miswiring and simplifying ordering. WattStopper's patent pending Neutral Sense Technology ensures proper operation in any installation.

Electrical distributors and contractors rely on WattStopper for the most versatile and reliable products, based on rock-solid engineering. Neutral Sense Technology was developed to address customers' requests for products that offer the greatest versatility, allowing them to minimize stock and reduce customer returns based on ordering errors.

Single and dual relay optional neutral occupancy sensors are available in 120/277 and 347 volt models that use passive infrared (PIR) or WattStopper's patented dual technology. The sensors are fully featured to complement other WattStopper sensors, and most models include optional multi-way control capability. Default operation is for the most energy efficient sequence of operation to simplify managing energy and acheiving compliance with the latest energy codes. Color choices include white, light almond, ivory, grey, black and red, making the sensors appropriate for almost any application.
