Eaton is proud to be the Official UPS (uninterruptible power supply) and Battery Back-up Supplier for Mount Washington Observatory, helping sustain its 80-year weather record and making sure its weather recording is not disrupted.

The Mount Washington Observatory also takes advantage of Eaton's on-site preventive maintenance services as well as Eaton's remote monitoring service that continually collects UPS performance data and sends status messages to Eaton's 24x7 remote monitoring command center.
