Power management major Eaton has introduced a range of power distribution products — RVAC SF6 Ring Main Unit (RMU), VS1 Vacuum Circuit Breaker (VCB), and PSL series Air Circuit Breakers (ACB).
“One of the most important imperatives for the power sector in India today is modernization of the DISCOMs in order to improve efficiency and reduce losses. In addition, I believe hazards and accidents caused by unprofessionally managed electricity is a major concern and can only be resolved by proactive and conscientious investments in equipment that ensure utmost reliability and safety,” says Syed Sajjadh Ali, managing director – India, electrical sector, Eaton.
“Eaton is responding to some of the most critical electrical power related challenges that the country faces today. Eaton’s comprehensive and innovative range of products and services, especially our newly launched technologies make managing power across utility, commercial, industrial and residential markets reliable, efficient and safe.”
Informing about the RMU, he says: “With advanced safety and ergonomically designed features the RVAC RMU is smart grid ready and immensely improves ease of operation and user experience. A highly compact design with logical mechanical and electrical interlocks improves personal safety and makes fault detection easy and quick.”
On VCB, he adds, it operates on mature spring operation mechanism adopting Eaton VI technology. “It is highly reliable, provides operational convenience, long life and easy maintenance.” On ACB, he also says, “The highly reliable PSL series delivers performance without compromise as it comes with a very high arc handling capacity. The PSL is operates with a special grease to work for low temperature (up to -40 C). PSL ACBs offers excellent mechanical and insulation capability, enhanced product and electrical lifecycle and highly reduced bounce.”
Stressing on the company’s India-specific manufacturing and innovation steps, he says, “Eaton’s electrical business has been consistently growing in India.
