Eaton is leading the way in transforming the manufacturing industry with its Industry 4.0 technologies. Their advanced automation products, analytics, and AI empower engineers to improve factory operations with speed and precision

The popular Eaton products now available from element includes:

The easyE4 series of programmable control relays provides a high number of inputs/outputs combined with a wide operating voltage range. Ideally suited to industrial and building control applications, easyE4 series’ interrupt function and powerful processors enables faster response times during operation.

The supporting and intuitive easySoft programming software comes with four programming languages, LD, EDP, FBD and ST as standard and an integrated web server. An Ethernet interface and the easyE4 display work with mobile devices and an HMI, or the XV-102 series Touch-Screen HMI Display can simply be used for visualisation purposes. If desired, the easyE4 Remote Touch Display can be used as a plug and play display solution.

The PKZ and DIL series push-in range of motor protective circuit breakers and contactors offer system designers faster and more cost-effective assembly and feature a combination model that integrates screw and push-in connections in a single device. This enables new devices to be easily incorporated into legacy control panel designs. Push-in connections can reduce assembly time by up to 50 percent, even when compared to tension spring terminals, providing significant assembly time savings. Push-in connection technology reduces wiring effort, improves quality, provides easy integration and is future proof.

Eaton is a trusted supplier of industrial automation components," says Eleanor Young, Category Director, Industrial, at element14. "Our partnership with Eaton supports our Industry 4.0 portfolio, allowing our customers to purchase the latest and best automation products available.”
