Eaton, a power management company, based in Peachtree City, Georgia USA, will showcase the company’s latest residential solutions for both home buyers and builders at the PCBC 2017 show, booth 2041, in San Diego, California, on June 28 and 29.
Eaton plans to highlight its portfolio that the company says will enable the connected home of the future, including LED lighting. Additional IoT-related products that the company will display include wiring device solutions, backup power, and residential energy management.
“The future of home connectivity is bright and home buyers are looking to builders and contractors to provide the latest in innovative, energy-efficient solutions,” said Brad Paine, vice president and general manager, Eaton’s Lighting Division. “Whether building residential properties, renovating a residence or raising a family in a single- or multi-family building, builders and homeowners can rest assured that Eaton’s products help increase safety and security, reduce energy costs and save time and money.”
Technology Offerings to be Showcased at PCBC 2017
Eaton also plans to exhibit and preview some of its newest technology offerings including:
The Energy Management Circuit Breaker (EMCB), which combines internet connectivity and on-board intelligence with circuit breaker technology that protects the circuits in the customer’s loadcenter. According to Eaton, the intelligence made possible using this technology opens the door to better energy consumption information. Eaton says it also helps to optimize utility grid reliability and simplify residential energy management.
Eaton will also showcase its Halo RL56 Wireless LED Downlight, a complete light-emitting diode Baffle-Trim Module. This downlight provides smooth continuous dimming and offers white tuning from 2700 Kelvin (K) to 5000K. Some of the available control functions include scheduling, grouping, geo-fencing, automation and remote access.
The downlight can work with Alexa as well as the Wink and Samsung SmartThings platforms.
The company will also show off the new MS180BT Bluetooth-enabled motion sensor for control of outdoor security lighting from a smart device. Eaton says that this motion sensor allows users to adjust settings for motion sensitivity and duration in addition to photocell sensitivity. In addition, the sensor allows manual fixture control without having to touch a light switch.
An available app for controlling the sensor for iOS and Android devices is reportedly compatible with any LED or incandescent fixture that uses standard ½-inch threading.
Eaton will also exhibit its range of products for residential building, including the company’s LED lighting technologies, circuit breakers, loadcenters, surge protection devices, and backup power.
