Pass & Seymour/Legrand (P&S), a leading manufacturer of electrical wiring devices and home systems, announces its newest addition to the Harmony family of lighting and fan speed controls, the Harmony Dimmer, designed for use with 120-volt "2-wire" dimming ballasts.

All Harmony Dimmers feature a large, attractive captive paddle on/off air-gap switch, a preset dimmer slide, a Green LED locator light, and EMI/RFI reduction circuitry. Power failure memory is standard. The fluorescent Harmony features an adjustable low-end trim pot ensuring the best possible dimming range.

The Dimmer offers easy installation, and can operate single pole or 3-way circuits. It can handle up to 8 amps total load in single and 2-gang installations. The fluorescent Harmony is designed to control Advance Mark X and similar style ballasts.

“We’ve seen an increase in the use of fluorescent dimming ballasts in both commercial and residential settings,” said Mike Piraino, lighting controls market development manager for P&S. “For example, Title 24 in California promotes the use of fluorescent lighting in homes. This requires commercial style recessed cans. These fixtures can only dim if equipped with dimmable ballasts and controlled by a dimmer designed for the ballast.”

The Dimmer comes in five colors: white, ivory, light almond, black and brown, and is available in a matte finish.


Pass & Seymour/Legrand(P&S), a leading provider of electrical wiring devices and home systems, has been recognized by Professional Remodeler magazine for producing one of the 50 Most Innovative New Products for 2008. The P&S Recessed Television Boxes, electrical receptacles and multimedia connections that remain recessed behind the wall surface, earned this distinction.

Editors looked for products that exhibited technological advances, significant improvements, new or increased breadth of line, and nationwide availability.

The P&S Recessed TV Boxes are ideal for flat-screen TVs, home office, kitchen countertops and behind furniture, allowing snug-to-wall placement. Snap-on end caps hide mounting screws for a clean, finished appearance, and metal swing brackets ensure a solid mounting. The Boxes are available in inclusive kits with Cat 5e, F-connector, old work and TVSS receptacles to protect costly electronics from potentially damaging surges.

"Our recessed TV boxes meet homeowner demands for multimedia and convenient connections," said Tom Roy, residential product manager at P&S. "With the endless variety of products introduced each year, having the editors rank one of ours among the 50 most innovative is a great distinction."
