Eaton Corp., Cleveland, today announced a contract valued at more than $1 million to supply the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) headquarters in Washington, D.C. with upgraded network protectors designed to safeguard the constant flow of safe, stable power to the 847,391-square-foot U.S. General Services Administration (GSA).

The project was made possible through a GSA contract awarded to Maurice Electric, Washington, D.C., an authorized Eaton distributor, and teaming partner, Meltech Electrical, a division of Meltech Corp., in a joint effort to meet the government's goals for small business participation in government contracts.

Eaton's Electrical Service and Systems division will provide field personnel for on-site technical services, including the replacement of the FAA's aging equipment with custom installations of the CM52 Network Protector, which Eaton says has the highest interrupting rating in the industry and are the only network protectors to carry an Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Label.
