Power management company Eaton is presenting its portfolio for all aspects of control and automation as well as circuit protection and power distribution at this year’s Hannover Messe from 7th-11th April.
At stand C63/69 in Hall 11, Eaton will be showing its energy efficient solutions that help customers worldwide use electrical, fluid and mechanical power more reliably, efficiently, safely and sustainably. Today, shorter product lifecycles mean that end customers expect machine builders to design and build highly customised machines, or retro-fit existing ones, faster and at lower costs than ever before. There is also a demand for machines that operate without fault, for longer and at the highest possible level of energy efficiency and safety throughout their lifespan.
Here, Eaton’s innovative SmartWire-DT technology advantages as it simplifies and speeds-up the design and build of machines, while also reducing waste and cost. With a constantly expanding portfolio of SmartWire-DT components Eaton has now managed to integrate electrical systems and hydraulics in a single control architecture.
With a range of electrical system protection solutions for harsh and hazardous areas, from product lines such as Crouse Hinds, CEAG, MTL or FHF Funke+Huster Fernsig, Eaton is well positioned to help its customers keep their people safe and their facilities running, even in the most demanding applications such as process engineering or oil and gas. A suite of hazardous area communication platforms set a standard for safety. Signaling, notification and surveillance systems protect, alert and inform employees of critical safety situations, making sure that people are always protected.
The developments in industrial automation, such as the increase in networking and system complexity, at the same time build-up the requirements placed on power distribution and infrastructure. By connecting circuit breakers, motor protective circuit breakers and measuring and communication modules within the SmartWire-DT network, it is now possible to directly log and evaluate the consumption values of individual consumers - a key requirement for effectively optimising energy consumption.
Eaton’s power distribution and circuit breaker portfolios are augmented by Bussmann solutions. As a result, Eaton can offer a full suite of reliable and efficient circuit protection products, both circuit breakers and fuses, so that customers can choose the right technology for their application. In terms of low and medium voltage power distribution, Eaton provides solutions for infrastructure and building projects as well as for utility companies and renewable energy systems. These are engineered to combine maximum safety and availability with an optimum level of flexibility so customers are enabled to easily respond to changes and new developments.
For critical applications, where unplanned down-time is not an option, Eaton’s suite of back-up power protection solutions ensures maximum system reliability and continuous up-time. Leading with 99% efficient uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems, Eaton’s solutions are designed for guarding loads against everything from surges to outages.
