About the Blackout Tracker

Eaton has tracked power outage information since February 16, 2008 in an effort to educate visitors on the causes and impact of power outages. Although we do our best to track this information, we cannot guarantee that every power outage is included in the Blackout Tracker.

A power outage is just one of nine common power problems that impact power quality and availability. In many cases, they occur within a building or facility and are not reported publicly. As a result, power-related problems occur far more frequently than what is shown in the Blackout Tracker.

How do I protect my data and equipment?

Eaton's Power Quality solutions maximise clean, safe and reliable power to critical applications, giving you continuous uptime to keep you business running without interruption.

The most frequent cause of system-wide failure stems from nine common power problems, all of which can threaten your network's functionality as well as your company's integrity.

Downtime – even a matter of seconds – can carry a staggering price tag. Studies show that business can lose up to several thousand pounds per day when network's go down…a steep price to pay when premium power protection is available for a fraction of what you're spending on hardware solutions.

One of the most successful ways of mitigating the risks associated with power problems is the installation of an Uninterruptible Power System (UPS). Eaton manufactures a complete line of award-winning UPS, software and connectivity devises to make sure your equipment will be safeguarded against all types of power problems.
