Understanding the system management value of the Eaton Easy E4 as a variable frequency drive means spending some time understanding what comes with the equipment package.

Built for Making Things Easy, Not Difficult
All of Eaton’s products already come with intuitive design and ease of use as priorities for product success. This same philosophy transfers to the Easy E4, which lives up to its namesake admirably. As a result, the unit makes for a very flexible controller that can be applied to HVAC systems, lighting, energy management, landscape and irrigation control, pump and valve control, and even consumer home automation control as well. There’s no question that the Easy E4 can be applied to a variety of systems; the challenge for most folks will actually be finding an electronically managed system that the Eaton Easy E4 cannot be connected and integrated with.
Kicking Progress Forward Proactively
A key problem in the past with logic controllers was the fact that they more often than not were static in design. They worked one way and only one way with very little in the way of flexibility. While this ended up creating a large market of different variations all over the place, it also created a lot of confusion over the years. Once programmable logic controllers became a possibility, Eaton made a point to not only make them available through its product line, but to also make programmable logic controllers extremely easy to use and configure, another big leap forward for system managers and facility technicians. The result seen in the Easy E4 practically speaks for itself with a wide range of internal flexibility by configuration as well as a matching design for physical adaption to existing system formats as well.
