Eaton says the new Late Point Definition Centre will enable its engineers to customise medium-voltage equipment, facilitating significantly shorter lead times for its Power Distribution Systems and Services (PDSS) customers.
Kevin Nesdale, General Manager of PDSS said the new facility builds on Eaton’s local engineering capability while also adding measurable value to its customers.
“We are committed to providing certified medium voltage switchgear to our customers in a fast and secure way. Our PDSS customers will notice a significant difference in the time it takes for their medium voltage equipment to be customised and delivered.
“There is no limit to the customisation work we can do. In time we will build on the capabilities of the facility and expand our services to perform testing on low voltage variable speed drives and conduct Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) which will save customers time and money travelling abroad to witness testing.”
Designed for long life and ease of maintenance, Eaton says its medium-voltage solutions provide efficiency and performance.
“The Late-Point Definition Centre enables fitting & wiring of protection relays, CTs, VTs & customised control, along with testing including dielectric withstand, insulation resistance and main circuit resistance measurements and functional tests,” Eaton says.
“Carrying out this work locally improves throughput in Eaton’s global manufacturing facilities and enables customers to witness testing without the need for overseas travel.”
