Focusing on Efficiency
The global regulatory environment surrounding the legislation of external power supply efficiency and no-load power draw has rapidly evolved over the past decade since the California Energy Commission (CEC) implemented the first mandatory standard in 2004. With the publication of a new set of requirements by the United States Department of Energy (DOE) that took effect on February 10, 2016, the landscape has changed again as regulators try to further reduce the amount of energy consumed by external power adapters. To help our customers stay on top of these continuously evolving global regulations, we have set out to push the energy efficiency initiative across our entire power portfolio. By continually monitoring the latest energy efficiency regulations, we ensure that not only our products, but our customers’ products are in compliance in each region where they are sold.
