New Pass & Seymour plug load RF receptacle from Legrand
By Renée Francoeur
July 3, 2015 – A new Pass & Seymour plug load RF receptacle is now available from Legrand.
The receptacle works in concert with the Pass & Seymour plug load RF signal pack and adds to an existing offering of code compliant controlled receptacles.
Enhanced plug load management happens when the Pass & Seymour RF receptacle is installed into a branch wiring system and the low voltage RF signal pack is integrated to an occupancy sensor and 24Vdc power pack, Legrand explained. The two are connected via a wireless, RF connection. The receptacle features an internal relay to switch the plug load on/off according to the sensor’s command.
Plug load RF receptacles are available in half and dual-controlled versions and are 15A and 125V
The RF receptacle features a steel mounting strap that is locked into the face and back body and is designed to resist pulling away from face/body assembly .032 inch think, brass, triple-wipe power contacts provide retention. An auto-ground screw provides a redundant ground means and power terminals feature screw-activated pressure plates for back wire flexibility.
