In fact, Eaton is a leading diversified power management company. We help the world use electrical, fluid and mechanical power more reliably, efficiently and safely.
That culture of “doing business right” includes a commitment to being sustainable by design. That means we can deliver innovations that not only help your business; they are also helping to improve the world. Some products that help reduce energy consumption Lighting control systems: turn off the lights when a space is unoccupied, and reduce artificial lighting when natural light is strong. These systems typically reduce lighting energy consumption from 10 to 30 percent. Eaton’s UPSs: achieve higher efficiency than traditional UPSs—and at typical low loading levels, result in 50 percent less power loss. Revolutionary technology delivers reduced energy costs and increased energy efficiency. Single-phase UPSs meet RoHS standards. Variable frequency drive (VFD): adjusts a motor’s speed to closely match output requirements, resulting in typical energy savings of 10 to 50 percent. Soft-start motor controls lower the demands on a motor during start-up, conserving energy and extending the life of the mechanical system. Harmonic Mitigating Transformers (HMT): HMTs reduce harmonic currents that disrupt the flow of useful electricity in a circuit. Fewer harmonics means more efficient energy consumption overall. Meters and software: High quality meters detect and analyze potentially costly power quality problems, as well as monitor energy consumption and efficiency in real time throughout a building. Metering software aggregates information into understandable charts and graphs that allow users to easily identify energy-saving opportunities. Eaton’s LEED Gold Certified Green Building Eaton Technical Center (Pittsburgh, PA) completed August 2008 Expansion of Eaton Corporation’s Electrical Group America’s headquarters $24M project brings total building to 260,000 sf Office and product development space brings over 800 people under one roof LEED Gold Several Eaton products contribute to LEED certification: Variable frequency drives help to reduce electricity use by 50% compared to existing Tech Center Daylight harvesting / lumen maintenance (lighting control system) Metering down to electrical feeders (system level) Educational Green Outreach program Construction site – recycling Green housekeeping program SMaRT certification (Sustainable Materials Rating Technology) - Eaton is conducting Life Cycle Assessments for many of our products. Eaton’s 9395 UPS was the world’s first electrical product to achieve SMaRT Gold certification.
ESS - Energy saver circuit provides power to the critical load and maintains the inverter input Double Conversion Mode & Battery Mode – Since the inverter input is always charged and the output is always synchronized, transition time is minimized
