According to Edward Seaman, Vice President Sales at Globtek in Northvale, USA, the Compamed trade show is an important forum for the company, with Western Europe being one of the biggest markets for the provider of power supplies and power electronic solutions, following the USA and China.
The company has now added so called Level 5 power supplies to its product portfolio. The European Union has set a goal of reducing by 20 % the energy consumption of energy-related products by the year 2020, and the use of higher efficiency external power supplies plays an important role in hitting this target. According to Seaman, more and more customers are enquiring about efficiency and energy consumption in order to make their products ‘green’. As a result, Globtek is also offering external power supplies which meet Energy Efficiency Level V requirements.
The Roman numeral (I - VI) corresponds to specific minimum active and no-load efficiency levels (as well as a power factor requirement for level V). Globtek's Level V power supplies meet requirements at 115 V/60 Hz and 230 V/50 Hz, and are designed to operate at multiple input voltages, depending on model. Custom configurations and devices to meet special regulatory or performance requirements are also available.
