Boosts Distributors', Engineers' And Contractors' Access To Products And Accessories

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (Jan. 9, 2012). - Legrand/Pass & Seymour (P&S), a leading provider of electrical wiring devices and home systems, has created a massive online product catalog of its entire range of electrical wiring devices and accessories. The interactive catalog will soon also be accessible on mobile devices including iPads, iPhones and Android devices.

Aimed primarily at electrical distributors, engineers, electrical contractors, specifiers and end users, the jam-packed catalog provides product and technical information and diagrams for over 10,000 different line items. It is available at http://www.nxtbook.com/nxtbooks/ps_legrand/catalog1112/#/0.

The easy-to-use catalog is organized into 18 different categories, with a glossary of terms and technical specifications. It contains information on safety and performance standards, wiring diagrams, NEMA configurations, and more.

Commenting on the user benefits of the new catalog, Jim Lent, marketing communications manager, Electrical Wiring Systems Division, Legrand, North America said, "We know that electrical distributors, contractors and other users work in a fast-paced environment and having rapid and immediate access to an online product catalog of electrical wiring devices and accessories is no longer a 'nice-to-have,' it's now a necessity. The user-friendly online catalog assists in rapidly identifying specific products needed on the job site. It enhances project decision-making and planning by allowing contractors, bidding on a project, to print off a page from the technical specifications section, fill in the necessary information, and then fax it to a distributor for a price quotation."

The catalog has a built-in search feature and navigating through it is seamless. The entire catalog can be saved to the user's desktop or as a PDF file. The built-in toolbar allows users to bookmark important pages, forward specific pages or sections to colleagues and clients and print selected pages. Users can also use the Note Icon to take notes about product features. Importantly, these notes can be saved on the catalog and are easily available for future reference. Finally, the catalog also has a share icon that allows pages and sections to be shared via Twitter and Facebook.
