Power Integrations’ EuP Standards Finder Quickly Matches  End Products to Energy-Efficiency Requirements
Power Integrations today launched its new EuP Standards Finder, an online tool for power supply designers. Providing immediate access to specific requirements of the European Commission’s EuP Ecodesign Directive, this tool eliminates the need for designers to search through volumes of data to figure out what is relevant to them.

Hosted on Power Integrations’ website, the EuP Standards Finder allows users to select an application from an A-to-Z listing and then immediately view the Tier One and Tier Two limits for standby, active-mode, and no-load power consumption. Links to relevant Power Integrations reference designs are also displayed in the search results. Commentary from energy-efficiency standards guru Mr. Green provides additional insight into how the Ecodesign Directive applies to the specified product.

Comments Rich Fassler, manager of energy-efficiency programs at Power Integrations: “The Ecodesign Directive’s power consumption limits will ultimately apply to hundreds of end products – from computers and external power supplies to set-top boxes and appliances. The standards are not necessarily organized by application, so figuring out how and when the standards apply to a specific end product can be challenging. Keeping up with changes in the standards further complicates the issue. With the EuP Standards Finder, Power Integrations has dramatically simplified the task of correlating the EC’s requirements to specific end products. The designer can simply push a button and get all of the data needed to make an informed decision.”

The EuP Standards Finder is available now on the Power Integrations website at www.powerint.com/eup-standards-finder. The tool is frequently updated as Ecodesign Directive requirements evolve and new Power Integrations reference designs become available.
