Imagine the potential of the next 100 years.
Delivering innovation to improve electrical safety where you live, work and play.
To help prevent the 90,000 residential electrical fires that occur in North America each year, Eaton pioneered affordable circuit interrupter technology
and helped incorporate it into electrical codes. In a plant, an arc flash event can generate temperatures that are four times that of the sun. In 2007, Eaton introduced the FlashGard Motor Control Center
-an industry first-with features engineered to help prevent injuries from electric shock, arc flash burns and arc blasts. Eaton leads the way with over 40 arc flash prevention solutions
and engineering services
teams that provide training and arc flash hazard analysis.
Providing the highest quality backup power protection.
To deliver the highest quality backup power protection
for your home computer, network, server and data center, Eaton is applying the knowledge that developed the first AC power inverter and commercial UPS combining battery chargers and inverters. To keep clean, uninterrupted power flowing, Eaton delivers the industry's most efficient UPS-the Eaton 9395
boasts a 99% efficiency rating and the highest reliability on the market. It is the first power-quality product to receive SMaRT Gold certification
Advancing energy efficiency, reducing costs and improving system reliability.
Eaton is building on the expertise that enabled development of the first automatic motor starter and threephase, oil-insulated contactor to deliver motor control
that lowers total cost of ownership and enables processes to run more efficiently. Bringing the first automatic motor starter to market made Eaton the natural choice to provide the control equipment
used to build the Panama Canal a century ago. Today, Eaton is providing the sophisticated equipment and expertise for major Panama Canal upgrades.
Reducing energy consumption to use resources more effectively.
In 1920, most people thought green was just a color. Even then, Eaton saw opportunities for efficiency. The result? A $1 million plant in Cleveland designed to conserve heat and maximize natural light. Today, sustainability
is integral to Eaton's culture and guides every action taken-a commitment that extends far beyond its own facilities. The Department of Energy recognized Eaton for meeting the highest standards in managing energy-saving performance projects. Today, Eaton is a certified energy services company (ESCO)
Reliably switching high stress currents in industrial and utility applications.
Eaton is leveraging the engineering expertise that pioneered the use of vacuum tubes to control heavy currents nearly 80 years ago by continuing to offer vacuum interrupters
and circuit breakers
with long mechanical and maintenance-free lives. Chances are, if you are using vacuum interrupting technology, you may already be relying on industry-leading Eaton solutions.
Pioneering circuit protection for global applications.
Eaton is applying the expertise used to develop the first molded case circuit breaker in 1923 to protect the circuits
that maintain the electrical safety of our homes, offices buildings and complex industrial and commercial processes. For instance, the Series NRX low voltage power circuit breaker
delivers the performance of a power circuit breaker in the compact size of a molded case breaker. Depend on Eaton circuit breakers
to deliver protection you can count on.
Fueling energy efficiency for a cleaner, healthier environment.
Back in 1976, Eaton started studying the viability of alternative power sources and became involved in the development of power systems for electric cars. Today, Eaton is the only company to offer hybrid-electric and two hybrid hydraulic system technologies
for commercial vehicles, as well as an electric vehicle charging infrastructure
for commercial and residential use. In Canada, Eaton is partnering with utilities to bring electric vehicle technology to the forefront. And, Eaton is already supplying and supporting vehicle charging stations across the United States.
Improving the operation and energy efficiency of data centers.
Transforming the way OEMs build machinery.
With a powerful operator interface platform
and the game-changing SmartWire-DT solution
-the first networking control system to connect power components-Eaton is delivering the next generation of connectivity to enable remote intelligence, simplify wiring and reduce commissioning and testing. Taking things even further, Eaton is also integrating electrical and hydraulic systems
to deliver a total solution to provide more accurate speed control and more reliable performance for full control of machine axis movement.
Powering a brighter tomorrow.
Our collective energy appetite is rapidly increasing as nations modernize and economies evolve. Electrical energy consumption is projected to double by 2030. Eaton's core competencies in electrical power distribution and control equipment are bringing wind
and smart grid
solutions to life today. Soon, Eaton will deliver a turnkey 3.2 megawatt solar power system- the largest in the state-for the New Mexico VA Health Care System
. Eaton was chosen for its electrical power management expertise, a robust service organization and solar power system design and installation competencies.
