Arc Flash Explosions: Myth or Dangerous Reality for Data Centers?

Published By: Eaton     Published Date: Jan 26, 2016
Arc flashes—the fiery explosions that can result from short circuits in high-power electrical devices—kill hundreds of workers in the U.S. every year and permanently injure thousands more. They can also wreak financial havoc in the form of fines, lawsuits, and damage to expensive equipment. This white paper aims to fill that knowledge gap by providing introductory-level information about what arc flashes are and what you can do to prevent them.

Backup Basics: Distributed Vs Centralized Backup

Published By: Eaton     Published Date: Jan 26, 2016
When designing a power protection scheme for their data center, IT and facilities managers must ask themselves whether a distributed or centralized backup strategy makes more sense. Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to that question. Companies must weigh each architecture’s advantages and disadvantages against their financial constraints, availability needs and management capabilities before deciding which one to employ. This white paper will simplify the decision-making process and lessen the potential weaknesses of whichever strategy you ultimately select.

Data Center Trend: Distributed Power in the White Space

Published By: Eaton     Published Date: Jan 26, 2016
Cloud computing vendors and colocation data centers make every effort to maximize the scalability, efficiency and agility of their data centers. As a result, more and more of them are looking into replacing older, transformer-based centralized power protection schemes with distributed architectures in which uninterruptible power systems (UPSs) reside in the white space (or data hall). This white paper describes the advantages of positioning UPSs in the white space as well as the essential qualities to look for in a white space-ready UPS.

Distributed versus centralized power backup strategies

Published By: Eaton     Published Date: Jun 01, 2012
Though power protection solutions vary in numerous ways, all but the largest data centers use basic approaches when deploying uninterruptible power systems (UPSs): Either they distribute many smaller UPSs among their server racks or they install one or two large UPSs centrally within or near their server room. This white paper outlines each architecure's pros and cons.

For Safety’s Sake: Avoid suspect electrical safety devices

Published By: Eaton     Published Date: Jul 12, 2019
The production of counterfeit products is an increasing problem that affects the entire electrical industry. Counterfeit protective devices, like circuit breakers, including GFCI and AFCI for personal protection, pose one of the most significant risks to facility and employee safety. Because counterfeit products are more difficult to detect than ever, we as an industry must do more to guard against their risks and liabilities. By purchasing products from authorized resellers and using available tools to authenticate products, buyers can ensure a safer supply chain that mitigates the risk sub-standard and counterfeit electrical safety devices pose.

For Safety’s Sake: the importance of risk analysis

Published By: Eaton     Published Date: Jul 12, 2019
Working on energized equipment is one of the more dangerous scenarios technicians face in the field. As a result, there’s been a concerted industry effort to improve the understanding of electrical shock and arc flash hazards. I believe one of the most important standards in this safety push is the restructured language within the 2018 edition of the National Fire Protection Agency’s (NFPA’s) 70E “Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace.” In the past, the standard addressed electrical hazards and risks holistically when considering energized electrical work. But today’s latest guidelines now identify hazards and risks independently and include recommendations for a thorough risk analysis that considers the hazard, the planned work task and potential human error. Together, the changes result in a clearer understanding of energized work and help reduce electrical incidents.

For Safety’s Sake: the NEC 2020 code review

Published By: Eaton     Published Date: Jul 12, 2019
Every three years, members of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) meet to review, modify and add new National Electrical Code (NEC), or NFPA 70, requirements to enhance electrical safety in the workplace and the home. This year’s code review is well underway: the second draft of NEC 2020 is complete and the annual NFPA Conference and Expo is scheduled for late June. What follows is a preview of what are, in my opinion, the most significant code changes on track to pass. In this blog, I’ll explore the reasoning for each change and the future steps the NEC may take beyond 2020 regarding: Ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protection Service entrance equipment Reconditioned equipment Performance testing Load calculations Available fault current and temporary power This is a high-level overview. In the coming months, my Eaton colleagues and I will dig deeper into each topic as part of a continuing series on the 2020 code review cycle.

Is your data-center ready for virtualization?

Published By: Eaton Corp.     Published Date: Jun 01, 2009
Virtualization can deliver dramatic benefits for data centers, but it can also stress the underlying support infrastructure.  Power and cooling systems—which may have been quite sufficient for pre-virtualization needs—could easily become inadequate when data center performance patterns are radically altered.  This paper describes some of power challenges related to virtualization—and the readily available technologies to address them.

NEC 2020 brings transparency to reconditioned products

Published By: Eaton     Published Date: Oct 04, 2019
Safety has always been Eaton’s highest priority and we work closely with the NEC (National Electric Code) to ensure new policies continue to protect our most valuable resources, people. Eaton, the NEC, NEMA, and other organizations have long maintained that molded case circuit breakers are not suitable for repair or refurbishment. While changes to the code for 2020 do not change that position, they do provide clarity on what it means to be refurbished and what is now required when a suitable product is refurbished, including clearly marking the item as refurbished and removing the original manufacturer’s listing mark. The new code distinguishes between general maintenance like replacing a breaker, and refurbishment, altering a piece of equipment to a once again operational state. Because a refurbished unit cannot be tested to the manufacturer’s test protocol, it cannot continue to carry the original listing mark. Read the article below and learn about "reconditioned", and what the NEC is doing to reinforce that UL489 molded case circuit breakers are not suitable for refurbishment or repair.
