New Plugtail(TM) Right Angle Connector Simplifies Shallow Wiring Applications

SYRACUSE, NY (March 8, 2006) - Pass & Seymour/Legrand (P&S), a leading manufacturer of electrical wiring devices and home systems, unveiled an extension of its award winning PlugTail(TM) product line today. The new offering is a PlugTail(TM) Right Angle Connector that fits all existing PlugTail(TM) Receptacles and makes shallow applications easier.

PlugTail(TM) is revolutionizing Commercial Wiring Devices without changing the standard pigtail process. At rough in, splice the PlugTail(TM) Connector into the box. At device out, simply snap in the PlugTail(TM) Receptacle and mount the Receptacle in the box. Installation is at least three times faster than traditional wiring device methods.

The new PlugTail(TM) Connector incorporates the existing design, but offers the added features of right angle crimped and welded contacts, so the wire leaves the housing at a 90 degree angle. This design is ideal for shallow depth raceway applications or tight box fill situations. The PlugTail(TM) Connector uses a polycarbonate housing with 6-inch stranded or solid pre-stripped wires.

"The Right Angle Connector saves 3/8 inches of depth, from the back of the tail to the back of the box, easing installation in any multiple-channel raceway and most shallow box applications. The new design is also compatible with all PlugTail(TM) Receptacles giving electrical contractors more room with any application," said Scott Bausch, Commercial Product Manager at P&S.

PlugTail(TM) is a patent approved product by Pass & Seymour Legrand. For more information about the Right Angle Connector or any PlugTail(TM) products, contact your P&S representative or visit the company's Web site at www.passandseymour.com.
