Eaton to Highlight Energy-Saving, Advanced Residential Solutions Designed to Save Time, Money and Energy at the 2016 PCBC Show

PEACHTREE CITY, Ga.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Power management company Eaton, a 2016 ENERGY STAR® Partner
of the Year, will showcase its innovative and energy-saving solutions
for the residential building and construction industry at the 2016 PCBC
trade show on June 22 and 23 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco,
California, booth 1215. At the largest home building trade show
representing the West Coast region, visitors to Eaton’s exhibit can meet
with company representatives and see its latest light-emitting diode
(LED) lighting, wiring devices and power management technologies
designed to save time, money and energy.

“Energy codes continue to drive increases in lighting efficiency and
electrical safety standards on the West Coast and throughout the
nation,” said Glenn Siegel, director, marketing and product management,
Eaton’s Lighting Division. “The PCBC show allows us to demonstrate
Eaton’s lighting, electrical connectivity, control and power management
solutions that are helping the building community adhere to the evolving
energy landscape and provide their customers with a home they will enjoy
for years to come.”

Visitors at Eaton’s booth can get a better understanding of the
advancement of LED lighting products, why LED products are becoming the
optimal solution throughout the home, and how LED solutions reduce costs
and maintenance. Offering one of the industry’s most comprehensive
portfolio of LED luminaires, Eaton will showcase numerous ENERGY
STAR-certified and code-compliant recessed downlights, surface-mounted
and undercabinet lighting products.

Additionally, visitors will also have the opportunity to learn about a
variety of the company’s wiring devices and power management solutions
including dimmers, charging devices, receptacles, switches, control
systems, load centers, circuit breakers and surge protection products.

Eaton’s technology on display at PCBC include:

  • Halo ML4 LED Downlights – Diminutive in size, but powerful in
    performance, the ML4 LED system is comprised of a housing, LED module
    and a choice of a field interchangeable, round or square, 2-inch
    aperture pinhole trim, delivering 900 lumens and offering the optical
    control and color quality typically associated with low-voltage
    tungsten-halogen MR16 lamps.
  • Dual-Purpose Outlet Branch Circuit (OBC) Arc Fault/Ground Fault
    – The receptacle provides both Arc Fault (AF) and
    Ground Fault (GF) protection in one convenient device. With the 2014
    NEC requiring kitchens and laundry areas to have both AFCI and GFCI
    protection and other areas expected in further code expansions, the
    AF/GF receptacle is a great new alternative solution to meet code
  • Complete Home Surge Protection – The devices help protect
    homeowners’ electronics and appliances from the damaging effects of
    electrical surges. Simply installed at the breaker box, the devices
    provide premium surge protection for AC power and cable at the point
    of entrance to reduce surges entering the home to an acceptable level.

Eaton will also highlight its ENERGY STAR leadership and its 60-year
recessed downlighting history at the show. Named the leader in lighting
by builders for the 18th consecutive year, the Halo product
line is celebrating its 60th anniversary and visitors will
see a historical timeline of Halo’s many accomplishments, including
providing the first ENERGY STAR-certified downlight in 2009. Eaton’s
impressive offering of over 150,000 configurable models of ENERGY
STAR-certified products in the Recessed Lighting category has resulted
in the company being named this year, and in 2015, as an ENERGY STAR
Partner of the Year.

“From what began as a small business start-up in 1956 to the industry
leader today, the Halo product line has been providing builders with
reliable and high-performing lighting products for their homes,” said
Siegel. “For 60 years, the on-going research and development,
state-of-the-art engineering, meticulous product standards
and tradition of unparalleled service has distinguished Halo as
the product line builders know and trust and we appreciate the
ongoing support from the home building community.”
