Legrand, North America has made additional improvements to its portfolio of Wattstopper lighting controls. The Wattstopper Passive Infrared (PIR) wall switch occupancy sensor, the WS-301, now features Manual-ON control, for maximum energy savings and code compliance. These sensors replace existing wall switches and are well suited for retrofit projects and other applications. 

Installing WS-301 sensors into areas such as offices, conference rooms, and break rooms can generate energy savings up to 60 percent by turning lighting or fan loads on and off based on occupancy and ambient light level. The WS-301 also meets electrical safety {2011 NEC} and energy {California Title 24 (2016)/ASHRAE 90.1 (2013)/IECC (2015)} code requirements. 

In addition to Manual-ON operation, other features and benefits include Neutral Sense technology, which offers an Optional Neutral connection ensuring out-of-the-box compatibility with existing wiring whether a neutral wire is available or not; shallow back housing and flying leads for easier installation; color options with matched lenses; and vandal/tamper-resistant lens for precise coverage and durability.

“Legrand is dedicated to providing the widest range of code compliant lighting controls to our distributors and their customers,” said David Kaminski, product marketing manager at Legrand. “New enhancements to products like the WS-301 sensors demonstrate our commitment to improve on existing products while continuing to develop innovative solutions.”
