Pass & Seymour/Legrand (P&S), a leading provider of electrical wiring devices and home systems, has unveiled its newest P&S PlugTail accessory: metal box solutions that make installations even faster.

P&S Metal-Box Kits featuring pre-installed P&S PlugTail Connectors speed up the commercial projects rough-in stage. With the ground wire pre-mounted to the box and the mud ring factory installed this solution reduces waste and time on the job.

At device-out, contractors simply remove the P&S PlugTail poly-bag protection and install the device. This solution provides additional aid for the productivity and consistency needed to meet tough deadlines.

Contractors can enjoy the benefits of greater productivity and reliability, with fewer SKUs to order. There’s no need for a protective cover plate, and the devices are flush upon installation.

"The P&S PlugTail metal box solutions bring job site productivity to a new level," said Scott Bausch, Commercial Product Manager at P&S. "They’re perfect for light commercial construction projects where quick and consistent installation is critical."

The Kits come in single- and double-gang versions in multiple box sizes.


P&S TR GFCI receptacle with night light

Pass & Seymour/Legrand (P&S), a leading manufacturer of electrical wiring devices and home systems, introduces its new Tamper-Resistant Nightlight/GFCI Receptacles, designed to meet the 2008 National Electrical Code® (NEC) standards for child electrical safety. The NEC requires all electrical receptacles in newly constructed residential units to be Tamper-Resistant Receptacles.

The newly designed Tamper-Resistant Nightlight/GFCI incorporates a sealed LED nightlight into a duplex receptacle. This is twice as convenient as the former P&S model, which featured a nightlight and single receptacle combination, and the LED maintains the same light output.

The LED nightlight is sealed with a Lexan lens, safer for children, and the light’s 20-year life expectancy eliminates the need to change bulbs. A photocell illuminates the light in the dark and turns it off automatically in the daytime.

In addition, the receptacle’s built-in shutter system prevents children from inserting metal objects into the slots and touching electrically live components. The improved shutter design accepts plugs more easily, with no additional force needed to remove the plug from the receptacle.

"Tamper-Resistant Receptacles are proven to offer the most reliable protection against child electrical injuries, unlike plastic outlet caps which can be removed or forgotten," said Bill Timmons, residential product manager at P&S. "The new Nightlight/GFCI devices meet the 2008 code requirements while offering even greater convenience."

The Tamper-Resistant Nightlight/GFCI installs just like standard P&S receptacles.
