Antec PSUs are compliant with the new ErP regulation

Antec announced that their lines of power supplies are compliant with the ErP Lot 26:2014 regulation. With this directive, the European Commission aims at reducing the environmental impact of energy-related products (ErPs). The regulation established a framework for setting Ecodesign requirements (such as energy efficiency requirements) for all ErPs in the residential, tertiary and industrial sectors.

The production, distribution, use and end-of-life management of energy-related products is associated with important impacts on the environment. The new system-based energy consumption regulation no. 617/2013 of June 26 2013 is implementing the directive 2009/125/EC by the European Union regarding the stand-by and total power consumption of desktop computer systems, small scale servers and notebooks. It requires the System Integrators and VARs of such systems to provide a wealth of power consumption-related metrics of the system together with the “normal” product information to end users.

The self-declarative, Pan-European regulation comes into effect on July 1st 2014 and on July 1st 2016 with aggravated power consumption metrics. Basically, the power factor during full power consumption is no longer allowed to undercut a value of 0.9. Minimum energy efficiency of 82 percent under a 20 percent load must be achieved, at least 85 percent under 50 percent load and again 82 percent under 100 percent load. For example, desktop computers are required to draw less than 5W in sleep mode and less than 10W in idle mode and use an internal PSU with efficiency “somewhat similar” to 80 PLUS® BRONZE levels:

Efficiency @ 20% Load

≥ 82%

Efficiency @ 50% Load

≥ 85%

Efficiency & PF @ 100% Load

≥ 82% & ≥ 0.9 PF

Sleep Mode Support

≥ S3 (≥ C3)


“Offering environmentally-friendly power supplies that deliver reliable and stable power while meeting good efficiency levels has always been an important factor for us at Antec”, explains Jerome Francois, Sales Director Europe at Antec.  “We are very pleased to announce that Antec PSUs already fulfill these strict requirements.”
