Eaton's Energy Saver Rectifier Verified by Independent Testing Laboratory
Eaton Corp. announced that Underwriters Laboratories (UL) confirmed the Eaton Energy Saver Rectifier (APR48-ES) to be 96.4% efficient. Compared to existing technology, the Energy Saver Rectifier is intended to reduce customers’ network dc power waste energy by 50% or more, achieve significant energy savings for customers in the telecommunications sector, and reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
During UL testing, the rectifier proved highly efficient throughout a wide variety of power output levels. Its power efficiency exceeded 96% for more than 30% of its total output range and overall efficiency exceeded 95% over more than 80% of its total output range.
