Eaton Corp. announced the Eaton 9395 uninterruptible power system (UPS) is “the first power quality product to receive a Sustainable Materials Rating Technology (SMaRT) Gold certification,” says Eaton. SMaRT is developed/administered by the non-profit Institute of Market Transformation to Sustainability (MTS) and awards products that offer multiple environmental and economic benefits and meet life cycle environmental performance requirements. This certification allows Eaton to contribute points in two Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) credit categories. The 9395 can also contribute towards the Energy and Atmosphere Credit.

“The 9395 SMaRT certification resulted largely from Eaton’s commissioned life cycle assessment that compared everything from the materials used in manufacturing, to energy used during construction, to costs associated with transporting the product,” says the Eaton. “The study results showed that improvements in UPS efficiency play a significant role in reducing the overall environmental impact of the product.”
