I would like to thank Eaton and the local L&W Power teams for their above-and-beyond support as we worked through difficult contactor issues,' said John Gibeau, manager, HV Storage and Distribution, Ford Motor Company.

During the final stages of designing a power distribution unit (PDU) for their 2019 plug-in hybrid vehicles, Ford Motor Company found the overcurrent protective device (OCPD) in place had inadequate current limitation to protect the contactor, causing catastrophic damage to the entire system. At the time, Ford was working with Eaton and Bussmann series product rep agency L&W Power on consultation services for various vehicle programs. In order to maintain their program schedule, Ford turned to the Eaton/L&W Power team to help solve this critical situation.
