Leviton Introduces New Hands-Free, Energy Efficient Fluorescent Ceiling Lampholder
Occupancy Sensor Turns Lights ON/OFF Automatically While Maintaining Safety, Quality and Ease of Installation Offered by Other Models
MELVILLE, N.Y. - Leviton Manufacturing has expanded its line of compact, energy efficient Fluorescent Ceiling Lampholders for closets and closed spaces with the introduction of its Occupancy Sensor Fluorescent Ceiling Lampholder. The lampholder features an occupancy sensor that automatically turns lights ON/OFF in response to movement in the room.
With no wall switch required, a green LED indicator light blinks when motion is detected. Positioned for maximum coverage, four knockout holes on the box, with a self contained sensor, provide a 284-degree field of view.
Uniting efficiency with safety, the device automatically turns OFF after three minutes of inactivity and features a unique bulb design, which prohibits homeowners from using bulbs that are not energy efficient. Designed to reduce the risk of fire in closets and closed spaces, the Fluorescent Ceiling Lampholder can also be used in open, indoor spaces.
The one-of-a-kind lampholder, which is backed by a limited two-year warranty, is ideal for use in closets, workrooms, basements, storage areas, utility rooms and attics. The hands-free design is qualified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's ENERGY STAR program and not only meets, but exceeds NFPA 70, NEC Section 410.16 requirements. With an average lamp life of 10,000 hours, the fluorescent ceiling lampholder also meets the Canadian Electric Code Requirements for use in closets with a lamp guard.
"Leviton's priority to provide economical, high quality solutions has led to the development of the energy efficient Fluorescent Ceiling Lampholder," says Maureen Munnelly, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Leviton. "The Lampholder is a smart choice for both contractors and homeowners searching for value without sacrificing product quality."
Pigtail leads and knockout holes for multiple box configurations guarantee easy installation. Backed by a Limited Two-Year Warranty, included with the Fluorescent Ceiling Lampholder is a 13W lamp and lamp guard. Additional bulbs are available for purchase through Leviton.
The new energy efficient Fluorescent Ceiling Lampholder is part of Leviton's commitment to comply with agency standards and to provide customers with the broadest range of code-compliant devices for every application need. Occupancy Sensor Fluorescent Ceiling Lampholders will be available through Leviton's network of electrical distribution locations beginning in August.
