PITTSBURGH, PA — Power management company Eaton today announced it has kicked off its 2017 Industrial Controls in Motion mobile tour. The hands-on, 40-foot, interactive showroom will travel to nearly 20 U.S. cities and educate original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), facilities managers, commercial customers, end users, contractors and others about Eaton’s newest energy efficient innovations for heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC/R), pumping, process industry and machinery applications.
The Industrial Controls in Motion exhibit features four interactive demos arranged by commercial and industrial application environments. Live demo areas include: a redundant VFD HVAC system, a multi-pump booster system, a material handling conveyor, and a mixing and separating process. An interactive Internet of Things (IoT) component allows visitors to create their own fault situation and receive alerts on their mobile phones.
“Eaton is excited to bring a unique, fully functional, real-world experience of next generation control products to our customers around the country,” said Tom Neuberger, commercial marketing manager, Eaton’s Controls and Protection Division. “By walking through the Industrial Controls in Motion environment, visitors can talk to our experts about emerging trends and how Eaton can help them work smarter, cut costs, increase energy efficiency and be safe.”
In January, the Industrial Controls in Motion trailer made its first stop in Las Vegas, Nevada at the 2017 AHR Exposition. Currently in route to Houston, Texas, the trailer is also planned to visit other select cities including Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and Cleveland, Ohio. The tour will conclude in November with a final visit to Fresno, California. Visit Eaton.com/ControlTour to view the full schedule.

The trailer’s application environment consists of complete Eaton solutions spanning the Industrial Control Division, Eaton’s circuit protection components, motor control centers (MCCs), B-line cable tray systems, Crouse-Hinds explosion proof enclosure solutions, and Eaton lighting.
