Power management company Eaton has opened a new Late-Point Definition Centre facility at Mascot in Sydney as part of a move to centralise its manufacturing operations in the ANZ region and to offer local customised solutions for its customers.

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.”

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
