WattStopper has launched a line of optional-neutral occupancy sensors that let installers decide whether or not they need a neutral after they purchase a wall switch product. Because the sensors work for two-wire or three-wire applications, one device is compatible with 2011 NEC requirements and with existing wiring. Unlike competitive products, they require no special configuration, saving time for contractors, preventing miswiring and simplifying ordering. WattStopper’s patent-pending Neutral Sense Technology ensures proper operation in any installation.
Neutral Sense Technology was developed to address customers’ requests for products that offer the greatest versatility, allowing them to minimize stock and reduce customer returns based on ordering errors.
Single- and dual-relay optional neutral occupancy sensors are available in 120/277V and 347V models that use PIR or WattStopper’s patented dual technology. The sensors are fully featured to complement other WattStopper sensors, and most models include optional multiway control capability. Default operation is for the most energy efficient sequence of operation to simplify managing energy and achieving compliance with the latest energy codes. Color choices include white, light almond, ivory, grey, black and red, making the sensors appropriate for almost any application.
