Eaton Industries

Eaton is a power management company doing business in more than 175 countries, with 2022 sales of $20.8B. Our energy-efficient products and services help our customers effectively manage electrical, hydraulic and mechanical power more reliably, efficiently, safely and sustainably.

Eaton was a partner in the DC-INDUSTRIE and DC-INDUSTRIE2 projects ( and provided around 70 DC semiconductor and hybrid circuit breaker prototypes for the 10 model applications. In the process, these breakers were rigorously tested and proved their reliability in combination with the equipment of the many project partners.

For DC-INDUSTRIE2, which was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action, Eaton acted as project coordinator. As a result, Eaton’s Hartwig Stammberger currently has the privilege of chairing the board of the ODCA.
