March 01, 2005 by Jeff Shepard

Eaton Corp. (Cleveland, OH) announced Version 4.0 of its Powerware PowerVision® Power Management Software, which has been tailored to meet the diverse needs of both IT system administrators and facility engineers, and is offered in two distinct package options: network edition and facility edition. PowerVision enhances the reliability of an organization's entire power protection infrastructure and reduces unnecessary downtime by allowing network administrators and facility professionals to proactively monitor the health and performance of critical power protection infrastructure locally or across an enterprise from any location.

The PowerVision Network Edition allows IT professionals to monitor all networked uninterruptible power systems (UPS) in a distributed power environment over the existing local area network, and it integrates seamlessly with most popular network management systems. With PowerVision, network administrators can receive immediate notification of alarm conditions, while easily managing UPS installation dates, preventative maintenance and battery replacement dates. PowerVision Enterprise Manager centrally monitors multiple PowerVision servers across the enterprise wide area network, enabling an accurate assessment of power system health across multiple data centers.

"As systems and facility professionals strive to eliminate every possible point of failure in the IT environment, Powerware PowerVision delivers confidence that an organization's critical power protection infrastructure is being closely monitored for potential problems 24 hours a day, seven days a week," stated Eaton's Power Quality Solutions Operation Vice President of Sales and Marketing Mark Ascolese. "Eaton is dedicated to helping its customers manage and maintain power quality, and our corporate focus on power protection monitoring software demonstrates our understanding of the daily challenges faced by our customers."
