Date: November 29, 2012

CHENGDU…Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation today announced an agreement with Sichuan Daka Electrical Company Limited (Sichuan Daka) to license Eaton’s xDL® 12KV medium voltage metal-enclosed switchgear to Sichuan Daka. The signing ceremony was held in Sichuan Daka’s plant in Chengdu, Sichuan Province. George Wang, General Manager, Power Distribution and Control, Electrical Sector, North Asia of Eaton and Mr. Hubing Li, president of Sichuan Daka, signed the agreement on behalf of two parties.

xDL is Eaton’s latest medium voltage system designed specifically for Eaton’s panel builder licensing program, providing reliable power distribution functionality for all industrial installations, including power plant, substation, industrial and mining factories, as well as high-rise buildings. Under the licensing agreement, Sichuan Daka is capable to expand its product offerings and serve electrical power management needs with the xDL system.

"Daka is an important player in the electrical equipment market and we are pleased to cooperate with Daka in this critical market," said Chris Butler, vice president, Marketing, Power Distribution and Control, Eaton’s Electrical Sector, Asia Pacific. "Eaton understands that, as demand for power reliability and safety rises, many local panel builders are facing challenges from regulatory compliance and cost constraints to address evolving standards."

Eaton’s panel builder program aims to help the panel builders meet these challenges through licensing Eaton’s technologies in low and medium voltage power distribution switchgear. The members of the panel builder program also have preferred access to Eaton’s electrical service team to secure reliable technical and project support.
"After detailed technical and economic evaluation, we believe that Eaton’s xDL will help create value for our customers," said Mr. Hubing Li, president of Sichuan Daka." We are confident that Daka can be more competitive in the electrical business with xDL added to our product portfolio. We appreciate Eaton’s expertise, commitment and support to the project."
