Case Studies

West Des Moines Community School

Pupils in the West Des Moines Community Schools rely on the district’s clock and bell systems for accurate class changes, lunch, recess, and to signal the end of the school day. When the batteries of their existing solution began to routinely fail, systems and switches were left vulnerable and the smooth daily routines the district counted on were disrupted. Replacing the batteries often left the problems unsolved — the UPS electronics would still fail.

As their non-Eaton units began dying off, the district’s network engineer searched for a more dependable solution and a simpler way to service batteries. Eaton’s reliability and performance stood out — previously installed Eaton UPS units were already safeguarding other district systems. Read how the time was right to deploy Eaton 9130 UPS units.
