Legrand Expands Line of Wiremold Plug-in Outlet Centers
WEST HARTFORD, Conn., Mar. 1, 2013 – Legrand has introduced several new Wiremold® Plug-in Outlet Centers that provide surge protection for office, commercial, school and medical applications. “We continue to add features in response to today’s commercial and institutional environments, and to meet our customers’ needs,” said Jim Forte, P.E., Legrand Compliance/ Product Marketing Manager. New Plug-in Outlet Center products include:
Network Surge Protection: Perma Power® M6BZNET and M6BZNET-15 computer grade surge protectors not only protect the 120V power line but also connected computer networks. Laptops and desktops are protected by an integrated network surge protector to stop surges on the RJ-45 network lines. Two of the six outlets are spaced for plug-in transformers so an outlet is no longer blocked when a plug-in transformer is used. Cords incorporate a 45-degree offset right-angle plug that hugs the wall without blocking the second outlet of a receptacle. These units are UL and cUL Listed and meets both UL1363 and UL1449 3rd Edition Standards for Surge Protection Devices.
Medical Grade: Wiremold ULM Series Medical Grade Plug-in Outlet Centers can be used in patient care areas in compliance with Article 517 of the National Electrical Code (NEC). These units feature redundant bonding, a rugged aluminum housing and Pass & Seymour® hospital grade receptacles.
36" Devices: Legrand has also introduced several 36" 15A Plug-in Outlet Centers to fill the gap between 24" and 48" models. These units are designed for use in relay racks and cabinets, laboratories, workshops, classrooms and offices. The UL309BC and UL309BD have nine outlets, a lighted switch, and a 6 foot and 15 foot cord respectively. The 3609ULBC and 3609ULBD join the CabinetMate® Series with nine outlets and a 6 foot and 15 foot cord respectively. These units are UL and cUL Listed to UL1363 standards.
