Eaton expands its current industrial portfolio to include ruggedised cabinets to support the growing trend towards digitalisation of process and communications and provide a safe, secure and available environment for IoT technology, automation, and big data and which is moving traditional UPS products outdoors.

Eaton’s ruggedised portfolio will ensure continuous critical back-up power to critical applications in telecommunications, transport, utilities, public services and agriculture whose data collection and processing is located in harsh environments subject to extreme weather, dust, vermin and vandals.

“Customers are now looking for an all-in-one solution that not only is backed by the engineering, expertise and application understanding, but can withstand any environment,” said Darren Salter, telecom solutions manager at Eaton.

The new range of solutions cater for most applications through customisable designs and offer an Ingress Protection (IP) of 42 to 55, guaranteeing vital electronics remain protected at all times.

“Previously organisations have had to source their back-up power solutions and protective enclosures from multiple vendors, which can introduce both deployment and operational risk,” added Salter.

The ruggedised portfolio will service other key sectors such as oil and gas processing, waste treatment, CCTV and security systems, automated carparks and industries requiring uninterrupted power supplies.
