Legrand North America announced that its Wattstopper High Bay Passive Infrared (PIR) occupancy sensors now feature "the first ever" Underwriters Laboratory (UL) listed snap-in mounting accessory. The snap-in design, now standard on all HBP-100 Series products as well as the extender modules, allows for quicker and safer installation, says the company.
The HBP-100 Series provides automatic control of individual LED and fluorescent lighting fixtures in warehouses, distribution centers, parking garages and other indoor and low bay spaces. These sensors help facility managers avoid down time and help contractors meet project deadlines while maintaining safety standards.
An array of choices are available in the product line to meet any project and budget requirement and include the HBP-111, HBP-112, and IP-65 rated HB Series for applications needing reliable operation in wet conditions. The economical HBP-112 sensor provides simple, cost-effective code compliance. The feature-rich HBP-111 sensor includes wireless configuration that simplifies set up, programming, and troubleshooting.
Legrand notes that in meeeting the UL 916 Standard for Energy Management, the HBP-100 series sensors passed one of the most significant tests for this type of product design called the UL Conduit Nipple Strength Test for Non-Metallic Enclosures, which requires products to withstand a 5 ft-lb impact without cracking the enclosure or separating the sensor from the fixture.
Products with this UL rating ensure reliability and safety of people and property, reducing the likelihood of injury from electrical shock or fire and damage to fixtures or electrical box-mounted controls. Many Wattstopper products, including the line of BZ power packs and FSP fixture integrated sensors, have passed this test.
“Safety and security are top of mind for those involved in building design and construction. While other manufacturers have offered occupancy sensors with snap-in mounting features, the new HBP-100 series sensor is the first that is UL-listed in the market,” commented Daniel Stankovich, product manager for Wattstopper at Legrand.
