PITTSBURGH … Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton is displaying its solar solutions at the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC’s) Greenbuild 2009 International Expo in the Phoenix Convention Center, Phoenix, Ariz., from Nov. 10-12 in booth #1218 . Eaton is also featuring its 9395 uninterruptible power system (UPS) that recently earned a Gold Sustainable Materials Rating Technology (SMART) certification from the Institute for Market Transformation to Sustainability (MTS).
The 9395 supports mission-critical applications and operates at the highest efficiency in the industry—up to 99 percent—across a wide load range with the Eaton Energy Saver System. The 9395 dramatically improves energy efficiency and sustainability while offering the smallest footprint in its class—50 to 60 percent less than competitive units. In today’s environment where data center growth can be unpredictable, the 9395 is designed to be upgraded in the field by adding modules to achieve redundancy, or to provide additional capacity.
“SMART certification is to products what Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification is to buildings. The certification reinforces Eaton’s commitment to developing power management solutions that meet the needs of customers while having minimal impact on the environment,” said John White, Eaton’s energy management and environmental solutions manager. “In addition to the remarkable efficiency the 9395 brings to our customers, the use of sustainable materials and highly efficient manufacturing technology in the design of the 9395 has resulted in the lowest UPS lifestyle carbon footprint on the market, with 80 percent less energy required for production and testing.”
Eaton’s exhibit will also feature a 42-inch interactive touch screen panel that explains how the company’s solar-powered disconnect switches, combiner boxes, invertors and related products work; an electric vehicle supply equipment demonstration unit and pull-up banner promoting the company’s involvement in developing plug-in hybrid electric power systems; and a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Products Guide accompanied by a video and Power Xpert™ Meter Demo showing critical information pertaining to commercial and industrial electrical distribution systems.
Eaton is also giving away a
™ system during the Greenbuild Expo. Home Heartbeat uses sensors to alert homeowners remotely to security breaches, water damage, unwanted power consumption by appliances and reminders to change filters, update security codes and perform other time-sensitive household chores. Attendees can register to win by stopping by booth 1218 during exhibition hours.
