CUI's External Ac-Dc Power Supplies Now Meet Europe's CoC Tier 2 Standards

CUI's external adapters, which were already compliant with the US DoE's Level VI efficiency standards, now meet the EU's more stringent CoC Tier 2 directive. This proposed law tightens the efficiency requirements under a low-load condition for external ac-dc power supplies and looks set to become a mandatory Ecodesign rule in January 2018. The product enhancement supports CUI's goal to help customers stay ahead of rapidly-evolving efficiency regulations and future-proof their designs.
