Eaton Releases New Rack Automatic Transfer Switch
The switch is designed to help data centers maintain consistent, redundant uptime to save time and money and reduce risk.
Eaton has announced the introduction of its eATS Monitored platform in the Americas with 15- and 20-Amp models. Extending its advanced automatic transfer switch (ATS) portfolio, Eaton’s latest offering expands the capabilities for data centers and mission-critical facilities to ensure consistent, 24/7 uptime and redundancy from a single power supply as part of a reliable easy-to-use power solution.
It is common to find single power supplies on information technology (IT) equipment, which means a higher risk for data and revenue loss when power is interrupted. During a power event, Eaton’s eATS Monitored platform enables seamless switching to secondary non-phase alternating current (AC) power sources without interruption for reliable power protection. The platform also includes a new liquid crystal display (LCD) interface with enhanced capabilities to help data center and IT managers more easily monitor electric loads.
Designed to assure the highest level of redundancy for mission-critical applications, Eaton’s eATS Monitored platform features a network communication card that alerts users when there is a power drop, automatically senses the proper conditions and initiates a transfer or retransfer of the switch to keep devices up-and-running. Eaton’s network-connected eATS Monitored solution delivers a fast transfer time to ensure power supplies stay on during power transfers, ensuring critical equipment stays operational at all times.
The eATS Monitored is optimized to work with Eaton’s integrated power management solutions, including power distribution units (PDUs), uninterruptible power systems (UPSs) and other power devices for a synchronized architecture. The new eATS Monitored models are the latest addition to Eaton’s virtualization-ready power management system. They operate seamlessly with Eaton’s ePDU® third-generation (G3) platform to distribute power to multiple devices and can be monitored through Eaton’s Intelligent Power Manager software, offering end-users a complete solution to monitor, manage and control power in the data center.
