Another major manufacturer joins this fast-growing international data-standards association

Leviton is now a member of ETIM North America’s data standards association, joining other large manufacturers including ABB, Eaton, Rockwell Automation, Schneider Electric and Siemens, as well as distributors like Sonepar.

The member companies are now participating in ETIM NA-led committee activity to build out the classification model according to the needs of the North American electrical market and related verticals. Based in Salt Lake City, ETIM North America is a non-profit chapter of ETIM International, responsible for the translation and adoption of the ETIM product classification model to support consistent communication of technical product information from manufacturers to end-users in the North American wholesale electrical industry and related construction and industrial sectors.

As a direct member, Leviton will be able to participate in as many of the ETIM NA Product Expert (PE) Group, including Wiring Devices/Lighting Controls, and the upcoming Wire/Cable group being launched in September where their Networking Solutions expertise will greatly assist in the ongoing, collaborative efforts, side by side with the other members of ETIM North America, as they translate the model to North American terminology.

 According to Mary Shaw, ETIM NA executive director, product experts from several ETIM NA member companies have been meeting virtually for over a year now, to advance the Power Distribution and Automation and Drives product categories, as well as the Wiring Devices and Lighting Controls, thanks to many manufacturer members overlapping in these products.  As such, Product Expert Groups are now being formed to cover other product areas in the model as membership grows.
