SmartWire-DT®: The easy way to connect

The SmartWire-DT® communication system is a fundamental technology of the Lean Solution powered by EATON and makes a decisive contribution to improve the entire value-added chain - commencing with planning and engineering, manufacturing and commissioning, extending to smooth operation with higher levels of system availability and to maintenance of the machine.


1. Lean Connectivity

  • No point-to-point wiring, which is prone to wiring faults
  • Plug connectors for connecting devices
  • Combined data and power supply cable
  • Reduced effort and expense! For wiring, test and commissioning by up to 85%

2. Lean Automation

  • I/O level of the PLC becomes part of the switchgear and is eliminated
  • Simple, linear automation structures
  • Automatic addressing of the devices
  • Common software platform
  • Reduced project engineering: By up to 70 percent!

3. Lean Power

  • Data transparency from the controller to the sensor/actuator
  • Actual current and energy consumption values of motors and plants
  • Enhancement of system availability
  • Optimisation of energy consumption
  • Fast diagnostics and simple maintenance
