Eaton’s New Gigabit Network Card, Grid Automation Tech Certified to UL Cybersecurity Standards

Eaton’s cybersecurity program and collaboration with UL establishes measurable cybersecurity criteria for network-connected power management products and systems.

PITTSBURGH – Earlier this year, power management company Eaton announced its cybersecurity research and testing facility was the first lab approved to participate in UL’s Data Acceptance Program for cybersecurity.

Since then, Eaton has released a number of products certified to UL’s cybersecurity standards. Today, it unveils the Eaton Gigabit Network Card, designed to protect data center UPS and power distribution units (PDUs) against cyberthreats, and the Eaton’s utility grid automation technology SMP IO-2230, designed to help global customers monitor and control intelligent electronic devices on the electric grid and microgrid applications.

The Gigabit Network Card is said to be the first UPS connectivity device to meet the UL 2900-2-2 Standard, while SMP IO-2230 is said to be the first utility substation automation technology certified under UL 2900-2-2.

Eaton says the new UL cybersecurity certifications for its intelligent UPS and grid automation technologies demonstrate the company’s worldwide capabilities to meet stringent specifications and customer expectations for safe, secure power management.

“Eaton’s proactive and consistent enterprise-wide approach to cybersecurity provides customers with confidence that our digital solutions meet rigorous testing standards to operate securely worldwide,” says Michael Regelski, senior vice president and chief technology officer, electrical sector at Eaton. “We know that an increasingly connected world needs trusted environments, and having our products, processes and labs verified by an independent industry leader like UL gives our customers an important advantage.”

These solutions join Eaton’s earlier certifications including its PowerExpert dashboard, said to be the first power management product certified to the UL 2900-2-2 Standard for cybersecurity, and its WaveLinx wireless connected lighting system, which is certified to the UL 2900-01 Standard.
