Redesigned Angle Plugs Allow For Use of Two Plugs in Duplex Receptacles
New Compact Design Meets Pass & Seymour Customer Requests
Syracuse, NY, March 25, 2004 - Pass & Seymour/Legrand, a leading manufacturer of electrical and network wiring devices and accessories, today announced the redesign of Pass & Seymour's angle plugs. In response to customer's requests for a smaller body design, the new angle plugs are significantly more compact allowing for the use of two plugs in one duplex receptacle.
"Traditionally, standard straight body plugs require up to an extra six to eight inches for the cord to exit the back of the device," said Jeff Mehrer, Industrial Product Line Marketing Manager for Pass & Seymour/Legrand. "These redesigned angle plugs are configured so that the cord exits vertically, thus saving space and reducing trip hazards."
Thanks to its compact design, the new angle plugs will allow equipment and furniture to be placed within two inches of the connection and accommodate multiple outlet locations. The angle plugs also feature: a durable polycarbonate body, a clocked face providing four potential directions of cord exit, a slot specific face to reduce potential intake of corrosive and contaminating particles, a broad range of cords for various applications and six screws for faster and easier installation.
The angle plugs are designed for various applications including: bench tools (miter saws, grinders or drill presses), large appliances (refrigerator), vending machines, office equipment and portable medical equipment, with four hospital-grade versions being offered.
