P&S Plugtail(TM) Switches Named Finalist in Product of the Year Competition

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (April 5, 2010) - Legrand/Pass & Seymour (P&S), a leading provider of electrical wiring devices and accessories, has been selected as a Category Winner in the 2010 Electrical Construction & Maintenance Product of the Year competition. P&S PlugTail(TM) Switches earned the recognition in the Wiring Devices category.

P&S PlugTail Switches help commercial contractors be more competitive on wiring device projects; installing in less than a minute, they're three times faster than conventional devices.

With three-wire solutions for single-pole, and four-wire solutions for three-way applications, the device is installed by clicking in the connector and tightening the mounting screws. It's easier than pigtailing and doesn't require a wire caddy, and the polybag keeps the connector free of dirt, dust and joint compound until trim-out.

Established in 2000, EC&M's Product of the Year competition honors excellence in new electrical product development, showcasing the most innovative products of the previous year. Winning products enable electrical professionals to complete jobs more efficiently and effectively.
