Eaton launches new mcc and power distribution system at customer event at The Green Box campus
At the beginning of December the xEnergy Elite introduction event took place on The Green Box campus. Eaton customers were introduced to Eaton's latest high-end low-voltage Motor Control Center and power distribution system.
This new system offers high availability, reduces the risk of arc flash and continuously monitors the condition of a switchgear, which increases safety, reliability and efficiency. The system has been developed for applications in (heavy) industry and locations where continuity is very important, such as hospitals, data centers, etc...
During the day, the guests received presentations from Roel Ritsma (ERCD) about safety with regard to low-voltage distribution systems in combination with current standards and Johan Beumer (Eaton), who was responsible for the official introduction of the xEnergy Elite system. Guest speaker Ynte de Vries of Koolen Industries, also located at The Green Box, gave a general reflection on the developments in the energy transition and how Koolen Industries plays a role in this.
The presentations, which took place in the Rogue One, were interspersed with a tour of the production site and a short-circuit test in the Damstra Lab, located on campus. An interesting and varied program was thus offered.

Working together on the energy transition at The Green Box
Since 2020, the former Eaton site has become the property of The Green Box. And while it is currently in transition to a major Clean Tech campus, Eaton is still a major tenant on the property and the campus facilitates Eaton where needed. Consider, for example, the sustainable state-of-the-art office building that was recently completed and is fully equipped.
The Green Box campus offers space to cleantech entrepreneurs who work on solutions that contribute to the energy transition. Eaton is also involved in sustainable developments. For example, they are a forerunner in the field of SF6-free switchgear by using vacuum and air-insulated switchgear. This is 25,000 times less harmful than switchgear with the toxic SF6 gas.
In addition to pleasant office workplaces and meeting rooms, the campus also has large production halls and testing facilities.
