ST. LOUIS, MO ó Power management company Eaton is helping enhance safety and effectively manage energy consumption for construction applications with the introduction of its latest circuit protection products. The portfolio of compact, end-to-end solutions from Eatonís Bussmann business focuses on helping achieve code compliance such as selective coordination as well as reducing equipment footprint to drive down costs.
ďEatonís circuit protection solutions are designed to ensure reliable power distribution and help meet code compliance without compromising the safety of people or equipment,Ē said Kristine Stoll, senior product manager, Eatonís Bussmann division. ďOur circuit protection products for the construction segment also contribute to a reduced equipment footprint, high short-circuit current ratings and superior current limitation that exceeds expectations in operational safety.Ē
Developed by Eatonís team of design experts and application engineers, the circuit protection portfolio makes it easy to meet selective coordination as well as addresses the challenges of saving space and code compliance for commercial, healthcare and industrial facilities. The Quik-SpecTM Coordination Panelboard, for example, has a compact footprint that is up to 40 percent smaller than other fusible solutions. The panelís finger-safe branches and fuse ampacity rejection also improves overall user safety. Other solutions include the CUBEFuse Safety Switch that offers visual verification of switch status and, with the use of current-limiting CUBEFuses, helps reduce arc flash incident energy levels.
Eatonís vast portfolio aims to meet the demands of both new construction projects and modernizing existing infrastructures. It features fuses, panelboards, surge protection, circuit breakers, busways, automatic transfer switches, metering, control panels, uninterruptable power systems and medium- and low-voltage switchgear.
