SANTA CLARA, CA  October 2007 –  Watt Stopper/Legrand proudly premiers its CodeSmart Design & Specification Tool: Best Practices for Code Compliant Lighting Controls CD. A multimedia educational tool, the CD includes video presentations, PDF files, CAD files and links to related information of interest to both specifiers and building owners or managers.

contemporary As the name implies, the content focuses on energy code requirements and code compliant lighting design solutions. It compares and contrasts today’s most widely adopted energy codes: ANSI/AHSRAE/IESNA 90.1 - 1999, 2001 and 2004 and IECC 2003. The interactive CD enables viewers to watch an informative video covering code issues and best practice solutions that is segmented into short sections for convenience and clarity. The best practices section is further divided into specific applications, and additional background videos are offered showcasing code compliant products appropriate to each application. Also available are product cut sheets, specifications, installation instructions and CAD drawings.

The CD, which is just the latest educational tool from Watt Stopper/Legrand, and part of the company’s ongoing mission to serve as an industry resource, also provides links to other helpful tools and information offered by the company. Viewers interested in sustainable design and the LEED program may visit the company’s Green Sense page. Those wanting more information on lighting control design and application can access best practice guides, including the new Best Practice Guide for Office Buildings e-book. Specifiers are directed to a CAD Resource Center. Watt Stopper/Legrand’s CodeSmart page provides access to updated information about code developments as well as links to standards making organizations.
