When it comes to commercial buildings, it’s hard to know what the future holds. Today it may be a conference room, but tomorrow it could be multiple workstations. However, there is one reliable constant: unique power requirements.
PlugTail® wiring devices by Legrand, which use a first-of-its-kind technology, are designed to accommodate those needs with flexible solutions that can satisfy a building’s electrical requirements today, tomorrow and for years to come. With no preparing, stripping, looping or taping, these wiring devices install in less than one minute. The product line includes sensors, switches, standard and controlled receptacles, surge protection devices and USB charging receptacles.
Here are the 7 top things you need to know about PlugTail:
Unlike other electrical wiring device platforms, PlugTail allows contractors and specifiers to lay out a space knowing that every point of connection can be used for a standard switch today and a sensor tomorrow. The unique PlugTail platform guarantees that wherever there is a pigtail connector, there can be any type of PlugTail wiring device at any point in time with minimal effort.
2. Faster Changeouts
PlugTail gives contractors the ability to offer the added benefit of minimal downtime. Because PlugTail wiring devices are simple to install, any device can be swapped out quickly and easily— meaning the facility can be up and running in no time as the requirements of the space change over time.
3. Increased Flexibility
Thanks to the unique PlugTail connector, contractors can provide limitless possibilities to building owners. As every pigtail can connect to any type of PlugTail wiring device, specifiers are able to deliver more and better options to building owners as they choose and change how a space will be used.
4. Security of Code Compliance
With space usage changing so quickly, staying code compliant can be a constant challenge for everyone involved. Fortunately, all PlugTail devices meet Federal Specification and National Electrical Code® requirements. This security gives specifiers, electrical contractors and building owners the confidence and peace of mind of knowing that however a space may be used, regardless of electrical wiring device changeouts, it will always be up to code.
5. Suitable for All Environments
While some products are better suited to particular environments, PlugTail
is suitable for specification in all commercial spaces—offices, education, healthcare, manufacturing, you name it. This distinct advantage provides specifiers with a seamless product for every job, while giving peace of mind to building owners.
6. History of Reliability
An often overlooked benefit of PlugTail is how seamlessly it fits into the construction process. Once a specifier creates a building’s electrical wiring plan, building owners and electrical contractors can easily work together to install whatever wiring devices best fit the space. Given the ease of installation, it’s no wonder PlugTail is preferred by many electrical contractors.
7. A Holistic Solution
PlugTail wiring devices by Legrand marry well with all other Legrand products including surge protectors, sensors, plug load and USB devices, Wiremold® products, and AFCI and GFCI receptacles, to name a few. PlugTail lays the groundwork for a flexible, code-compliant, cohesive electrical solution, with the option of energy-efficient upgrades—all of which can be easily provided by Legrand.
