Legrand/Pass & Seymour, a leading provider of electrical wiring devices and home systems, announces its powerful Dual Technology Wall Switch Sensors, designed to provide optimum energy management and control for a variety of commercial applications.

Ideal for small offices, executive suites, conference rooms and break rooms, the Sensors offer the choice of automatic ON or manual ON operation. The combination of passive infrared (PIR) and ultrasonic technologies provides high sensitivity to small and large movements along with wide, dense detection. PIR technology detects infrared energy from a human body in motion, while the ultrasonic technology spreads coverage over a wider area and picks up smaller movements to time the ON/OFF function more efficiently.

"At a time when energy management is a top priority, the Dual Technology Wall Switch Sensors allow businesses to control lighting costs with tremendous consistency and accuracy," said Keith Falkenberg, product manager at Legrand/Pass & Seymour.

Three control options can set the ON/OFF time delay once occupancy is detected. A self-adaptive option adjusts time delays based on usage patterns, assigning delays as brief as seven minutes when space is typically vacant and up to 30 minutes for busier times. It even differentiates electrical noise from human motion. The fixed option provides 5-, 15- or 30-minute delays, while walk-through mode turns lights off three minutes after a room is initially occupied if no further motion is detected after 30 seconds. Finally, test mode allows quick and easy adjustments.

The compact product design fits into existing boxes for fast, easy installation, and a bi-level model provides control of two independent lighting loads from the same box. The Sensors come in white, black, light almond, ivory and gray.


selective call intercom unit

Inspired by color and design trends from around the world, the Selective Call System seamlessly blends technology with design. Its sculptural curves, featuring titanium edging and a screwless finish, allow homeowners to integrate technology with personal style and taste.

Enabling broadcast or room-to-room communication at the touch of a button, Selective Call can accommodate up to 32 locations and three simultaneous, private conversations — the only intercom in the industry to do so. It eliminates the need for a main console, allowing complete system control from any room unit.

Users can choose from 96 room names, such as "nursery" or "great room", and up to 20 built-in digital door tones. The easy-to-use interface ensures complete system personalization and lists room names according to the most frequently called locations.

Selective Call’s installation is simple and efficient. Just run a single Cat 5 cable from the enclosure to each Selective Call unit, and plug it into an RJ45 connection.


tamper resistant family of electrical devices

Legrand/Pass & Seymour, a leading manufacturer of electrical wiring devices and home systems, announces the most complete line of Tamper-Resistant Receptacle Combination devices to protect young children from electrical hazards. Meeting 2008 National Electrical Code(r) (NEC) tamper-resistant requirements, the combination devices expand what is already a broad offering of Tamper-Resistant Receptacles for residential and commercial applications.

A Tamper-Resistant Receptacle works like any electrical outlet, except it has a built-in shutter system that prevents children from inserting metal objects into the slots. The shutters obstruct objects from touching electrically live components, but plugs can be inserted and removed as usual.

The Tamper-Resistant Combination devices join a family of products that offer solutions for every home location and purpose, to allow for more functionality in an existing electrical box without breaking sheet rock. A full range of models combine receptacles with switches and LED nightlights. GFCI receptacles are also available in these combinations. The devices come in 15A and 20A versions.


"The Tamper-Resistant combination devices are designed to give users multiple functions in a single product solution," said Tom Roy, residential product manager at Legrand/Pass & Seymour. "By offering the broadest range of Tamper-Resistant products on the market, we've combined proven safety technology with optimal convenience."

Over 30 states and municipalities have adopted the new Tamper-Resistant Code requirements, and more are be expected to adopt them by the end of 2009.
