Smarter Network = Smarter Grid
Underground network vault systems are typically among the most outdated of distribution system infrastructure. The needs of today's Smart Grid demand that the network system be updated with modern, electronic monitoring and control capabilities to deliver ultra-high reliability in today's digital era. Eaton's solutions assure that the status and condition of network assets are available in real time, and are seamlessly integrated into your existing operating system. The result is increased reliability at lower cost.

Lower Total Operating and Maintenance Costs
O & M costs for underground networks are high because the systems are relatively inaccessible to crews, and because of the public safety measures that must be implemented prior to every vault entry. Eaton's solutions for network vaults give your Operations and Maintenance management a new set of tools to streamline operational procedures for network crews and to lower long term maintenance costs by introducing elements of condition-based maintenance.
Improve Crew and Public Safety
Network vaults pose unique safety risks for utility workers. The vault environment can be made much safer by implementing modern, digital monitoring and control solutions. Eaton's total vault solution creates a safer work environment for employees and a safer public space on the sidewalks and streets nearby.
