Panelboard for lighting and load management
Eaton's Pow-R-Command intelligent panelboard is designed to reduce heating, ventilation and air conditioning load requirements and lighting energy usage with a range of control and daylight harvesting capabilities.
Eaton's Pow-R-Command intelligent panelboard, engineered to help industrial and commercial facilities maximize energy performance. By providing a full range of lighting control, dimming and daylight harvesting capabilities, the new system can reduce heating, ventilation and air conditioning load requirements and lighting energy usage by as much as 41%.
The system also integrates lighting control and branch circuit protection in one compact enclosure to reduce required wall space. Additionally, a compartment behind the display allows for safe access to low voltage communications and input/output connections without removing the panelboard trim or deadfront. This design increases safety by preventing service personnel from coming into contact with live components, and reduces the need for a qualified electrician with personal protective equipment to assist in troubleshooting.
To simplify scheduling and programming changes, an intuitive, high-resolution color touchscreen is located on the front panel of the device. The display provides a local means for system status data and override control. The Pow-R-Command system also includes pre-configured Web pages to allow easy schedule changes and system monitoring.
A range of communication options are available to provide facility managers with centralized programming, status and control, as well as convenient access to local and remote controllers via application software. The communication options are designed to integrate with other facility management systems to provide unified control and monitoring of facility assets.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
