Following on from the successful launch of FSP’s retail PSU range, comes their new environmentally friendly power supply - Green Power! In preparation for the new EU directives for 2006, FSP are ahead of the game with their low energy consumption and high performance offering.
The ROHS directive (Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment) effective from July 1st, 2006 states that new electrical and electronic equipment must not contain harmful substances, as specified in the directive, and therefore must be replaced with other materials. In addition to this, an environmental tax will come in to play which will charge importers of electrical and electronic equipment based on weight (WEEE Directive).
FSP constantly seeks ensure its products are both responsible to its users and in line with both current and forthcoming legislation. To this end, the new Green Power PSU has been developed and it is both a lighter & more energy efficient PSU that is low on hazardous substances. From the selection of materials used to manufacture Green Power, FSP has successfully produced the first of its kind in the market.
Green Power’s efficiency rate exceeds 85% at full load and has a standby power consumption of less than 1W.
Furthermore the noise level of the PSU at full load is less than 30 dBA. FSP has tackled the weight of the PSU by redesigning the internal layout and using lighter, higher end internal components thereby reducing the weight by 600g.
Green Power also meets the latest Intel ATX 12V v2.0 specifications, has a 6-pin PCIe connector, native S-ATA connectors in addition to a 20+4 pin connector.
