Legrand launches Ysalis switches and sockets to local economy and standard market segments

Legrand’s Ysalis switches and sockets - with the latest technology for energy saving, safety and reliability - have recently been launched in South Africa.

The company's strategy to introduce a chic range of wiring devices to economy and standard market segments, meets local demand for sophisticated, yet affordable fittings, with safe and reliable control features. 

"This stylish new Ysalis range has a contemporary design that enriches the décor of any home or office and also provides easy and convenient control of lighting, air-conditioning and the television," states Sonja Leibbrandt, marketing and pricing manager, Legrand SA, part of the global Legrand Group. "Slim, curvy shaped plates, available in white and champagne, can be fitted with fluorescent indictors on the switches for improved comfort and safety in the dark."

"What's important feature for the local market is Ysalis sockets accommodate current and new RSA standards for universal dimmer switches and data and USB sockets, as well as TV sockets for audio and video connections. These switches and sockets are also fully compatible with Legrand trunking systems."

"It's also impressive that the modular design allows any configuration to be adapted to suit present and future needs. With this system, it's not necessary to damage the wall to increase, remove or change the number of lighting points or connections - the same box and support frames are used to accommodate all modifications."

The compact design of these mechanisms provides more space in the back box for easy wiring and for enhanced safety, a spacer separates high and data currents.

There are various modules available - from one to three modules, up to six modules - with double or triple pole switches. 

Universal dimmers are designed for new and existing installations, to dim incandescent and halogen loads, as well as LEDs and compact fluorescent lamps.

For easy installation, data sockets are fitted with tool-less connectors, eliminating the need for punch down tools.

Ysalis wiring devices enhances Legrand's Arteor range, which encompasses simple switches, to the most advanced home automation systems.

Legrand's commitment to its local customer base encompasses the ongoing launch of products to meet exact market requirements. Energy efficiency, enhanced aesthetics, flexibility, reliability and safety, are critical in the development of all Legrand systems. The company has made a substantial investment in research, development and design to ensure all products comply with South African standards and regulations.
