Plug Load Control - WattStopper/Legrand - Facility Management Product Release

website | Company information

The Isole plug load controller from Watt Stopper couples a personal occupancy sensor with a surge-protected power strip to turn off unneeded devices when a space is vacant. Two uncontrolled outlets on the device are for devices that should remain on regardless of occupancy; the other six outlets are occupancy-controlled.

Plugging equipment such as monitors, task lighting, radios, calculators, fans, heaters and transformers into the controlled outlets ensures that these devices will only be powered up when they are needed. In addition to turning off unneeded lighting and fans, Isole also shuts off power to ‘phantom’ loads such as sleeping monitors and unused transformers.
