WattStopper introduces WRC series
July 29, 2015 - WattStopper has introduced its Wireless Receptacle Controls (WRC) series. Extending occupancy-based lighting control to plug loads, the WRC line of products helps lighting control professionals meet new ASHRAE 90.1 requirements to switch off selected receptacles. According to WattStopper, the solution also minimizes costs for retrofits and new construction as it utilizes RF technology and works with existing line voltage wiring.

The WRC solution facilitates Auto-On/Auto-Off occupancy-based control of plug loads and includes an RF transmitter and intelligent RF receptacles. The WRC line of products comes in two versions: for use with stand-alone occupancy sensors, or with WattStopper’s Digital Lighting Management (DLM) platform.
The products are suited for applications such as commercial offices, classrooms, conference rooms, copy rooms, and any other space that requires a plug load control solution.
