ErP/EuP System
What is ErP/EuP?
ErP/EuP, stands for Energy Using Product, was a provision regulated by European Union to define the power consumption for
the completed system. With the great quantity and the popularly using of the electrical products nowadays and the continuously
increasing of the electrical products categories in the following 20 to 30 years, European Union decided to establish an effective
strategy to solve the energy consumption problem. That is, according to ErP/EuP, the total AC power of the completed system
shall be under 1.00W in off mode condition.
