Everything we do in our modern world is made possible by power

Mechanical power. Electrical power. Hydraulic power. For centuries, simply generating and harnessing that power was one of humankind's greatest challenges. Today, how our world uses power is rapidly changing: Digitization, the Internet of Things, the electrification of transportation and much more.

We know our customers want to conserve resources and reduce their carbon footprint. And we know that many countries have committed to ambitious targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80 percent by 2050.

Around the world, we're helping to make this happen by developing innovative products and solutions that enable customers to conserve resources. We are committed to improving lives and the environment while helping to solve the world's most pressing power management challenges.

Our products are changing how the world uses power, we’re helping make the world safer, cleaner and more connected

We’re helping the world transition to more fuel-efficient and electrified transportation

The future of transportation — on the road, on rails, in the skies and on the sea — is moving toward electrification. At the forefront of this change is the demand from consumers and major vehicle manufacturers to incorporate electric vehicles into their transportation offerings. With decades of experience in managing high-voltage power and developing commercial vehicle hybrid systems, we are positioned to solve complex electrical challenges, such as circuit protection, including proper fuse and contactor coordination, and blended power systems.

We’re helping to transform the power grid

Over the next 20 years, a minimum of US$40 trillion must be invested in new or updated electric-grid infrastructures worldwide. And we’ll provide many of the products needed to make this happen, while serving those who can’t wait for dependable power with grid-independent solutions that are reliable and safe. Our microgrid solutions combine multiple power generation sources, including generators, solar, and wind as well as energy storage, and can be integrated on a common grid structure with necessary loads seamlessly islanded from or paralleled with the main power grid.

We’re changing the way homeowners think about managing power

Homes are more connected and automated than ever. By 2020, the average home will contain more than 35 connected devices. From smarter lighting to data-driven appliances, we’re building products that change the way homeowners and contractors use power. Our Halo Home System groups, dims, and schedules a home’s lighting to dramatically cut back on wasted energy. Our Home Automation Hub allows homeowners and contractors to integrate with smart home systems to control a variety of intelligent devices.

We’re helping our customers make better decisions when they use power

The number of internet-connected “things” is expected to reach 125 billion by 2030 and will increase the both the amount of energy the world consumes, as well as how it is used. We’re focused on creating intelligent solutions that gather and convert data into actionable insights, helping our customers use energy more wisely. Our PredictPulse remote monitoring service collects and analyzes data to make recommendations and automatically take action. And our IntelliConnect solution provides diagnostics and predictive analytics through transmission codes, engine duty cycles and terrain information to notify truck drivers and fleet owners in real time of the severity of issues with a vehicle. With our connected lighting products, physical light fixtures help increase building, business and community operating efficiencies through controls and data.

We’re helping to keep the world fed

By 2050, the world’s population will exceed 9.8 billion — placing increased pressure on food production and water resources that are already insufficient to meet global demand. Our solutions for agricultural machinery help increase harvest equipment productivity and efficiency, making every drop of fuel count. Out in the field, our intelligent CMA advanced mobile hydraulic valve increases efficiency and productivity, from precision seeding to placement of the cultivator, protecting delicate root systems and supporting crop growth.  At harvest time, the CMA’s motion control technology helps adjust header height and drive speeds to follow the contours of the terrain and improve crop yield. Our filtration solutions help the food and beverage industry deliver high quality products while reducing product loss. And our BECOPAD filters help beverage producers reduce water used for neutral rinsing by up to 50 percent, and they’re 100 percent compostable. Water quality agencies have come to rely on our automatic self-cleaning and mechanically cleaned filters to remove sediment and other suspended solids commonly found in surface and ground water, helping cities meet their watershed protection obligations and protect public health.

Using the SHINE framework, we can better calculate the "handprint" — or positive impact — of our products. Our handprint is the measurement of the combined impact of our operations with the impact of the application of our products. A positive handprint results when a product or operation reduces impact to air, water or soil,  or improves health and wellbeing compared to business as usual.
