The eATS30 features a network communication card that alerts information technology (IT) and data center managers in the event of a power drop, while also providing the intelligence to sense the proper conditions and initiate a transfer and retransfer of the switch to keep devices working properly.

“With intelligent network connectivity and rapid transfer times, the eATS30 expands Eaton’s best-in-class solutions to save time, save money and reduce risk in IT environments with single power-supply devices,” says Joe Skorjanec, product manager, Eaton. “In the case of a power outage, the eATS30 is designed to automatically transfer power from the primary source to a secondary source to allow for continuous uptime and business continuity.”

The platform delivers a fast 10-millisecond transfer time to allow power supplies to stay on during transfer. This design allows critical equipment to operate at all times. It is increasingly common to find single power supplies on IT equipment, which becomes a single point of failure when power is interrupted. The unit adds dual source redundancy or acts as a UPS maintenance bypass, offering a way to maintain power to the equipment.

The unit is optimized to work with Eaton’s power management solutions, including power distribution units (PDUs), uninterruptible power systems and other power devices for a synchronized architecture to ensure consistent, reliable uptime. The eATS30 can be paired with Eaton’s latest ePDU® third-generation (G3) platform to distribute power to multiple devices. This can be monitored through Intelligent Power Manager™ software, offering end-users an integrated power management system that is virtualization ready.
