Eaton Korea is aiming to expand its supply of electric solutions for data centers in South Korea, its country manager for the country told TheElec.

The South Korean data center market is growing quickly from various trends such as AI, Eaton Korea President Oh Seung-hwan said.

As data centers need uninterrupted and stable supply of power, this makes Eaton’s products and expertise very attractive for data center operators, he said.

Some of Eaton’s main products include uninterruptible power supply (UPS), switchboard and busway that are supplied to companies in various sectors from data centers to semiconductors, batteries, automobiles and aerospace.

In South Korea, the issue of data center management was highlighted last year in October when a fire halted the operation of a data center that stored data from local chat company Kakao.

Oh said Eaton’s UPS included features such as hot swap, energy saver system, hot sync technology and others. The company’s energy saver had a 99% efficiency, the President said, higher than its predecessor’s 97%.

Eaton’s switchboard also has strong arc protection, with energy output reduced when there is an arc accident.

The arc is also immediately vacuumed if it occurs to reduce the heat and pressure that can cause the accident to worsen.

Eaton will also offer Brightlayer, its intelligent power management system, that offers automation, control and predictions for customers.

Oh also said the company can help South Korean companies' battery and automobile factories in the US get verification for their power equipment more easily.

Eaton’s customers include Microsoft and Meta. It also supplies its UPS and switchboard to South Korean online service companies.
