  • Healthcare providers can experience greater resiliency, efficiency and safety with Eaton technologies at 2019 ASHE Conference

PITTSBURGH, PA… With the continued adoption of digital innovation by healthcare providers to transform the patient care experience, power management company Eaton is helping facility operators understand the potential for intelligent power to improve the resiliency, efficiency and safety of the infrastructure powering these advancements. Eaton is educating healthcare facility leaders on the critical role of intelligent power in healthcare modernization at the 2019 American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) Annual Conference & Technical Exhibition from July 14 through 17 at the Baltimore Hilton in Baltimore, Maryland.

“Healthcare providers continue to look for ways to leverage technology to improve the reliability and resiliency of the hospital’s essential electrical system,” said Justin Carron, global segment manager for healthcare and life sciences, Eaton. “Our intelligent power solutions play an essential role in enabling energy management and achieving compliance, while providing a safe work environment. This technology innovation helps healthcare facilities provide better patient care and aid the personnel who are delivering it.” 

Eaton’s Carron is contributing to the ASHE panel discussion “Powered for Patients DHS NIPP Security & Resilience Challenge Project to Boost Emergency Power Resilience” on Tuesday, July 16. The discussion provides insight into the Powered for Patients initiative, which seeks to leverage intelligent power solutions to help enable faster government response to facilities impacted by power outages due to natural disasters.

At ASHE 2019 booth #447, Eaton will provide healthcare facility operators with insights into how they can fuel their efforts to modernize their approach to patient care with innovative solutions that include:

  • Eaton’s new Pow-R-LineXD switchboard, an intelligent solution featuring a compact design that enhances safety and reduces downtime with improved breaker change-out capability.
  • Eaton’s Arc Quenching Magnum DS switchgear, industry-first technology that extinguishes arc flash more than 10 times faster than traditional approaches and substantially reduces downtime resulting from arc flash events.
  • A preview of Eaton’s Pow-R-Line Xpert Series, an intelligent switchboard and panelboard series featuring built-in communications, energy metering and circuit breaker health diagnostics to support a safer, more reliable electrical system.
  • Bypass isolation transfer switches, designed to maintain continuous power and personnel safety during routine maintenance, inspection and testing procedures.
