Eaton is collaborating with global safety and security certification firm UL to advance power management cybersecurity across industries.
The goal of the collaboration is to create measurable cybersecurity criteria for network-connected power management products and systems.
In addition, Eaton’s cybersecurity research and testing facility in Pittsburgh is the first lab approved to participate in UL’s Data Acceptance Program for cybersecurity. The program, which is in development and available on a limited basis, aligns Eaton’s testing methodologies and data generation with the UL Cybersecurity Assurance Program for UL Standards 2900-1 and UL 2900-2-2.
Eaton’s cybersecurity research and testing facility in Pittsburgh now has the capability to test Eaton products with intelligence or embedded logic to key aspects of the UL 2900-1 and 2900-2-2 Standards.
Eaton is now in the process of developing a growing portfolio of products to meet stringent specifications, regulations and consumer expectations for safe, secure power management.
In addition, Eaton’s Power Xpert Dashboard became the first power management product certified to the UL 2900-2-2 Standard for cybersecurity in industrial control systems. This user portal to Eaton’s switchgear enables customers to monitor, diagnose and control equipment from a location outside the arc flash boundary.
