80 PLUS Platinum to offer over 90 percent efficiency

Posted on Thursday, December 10 2009 @ 16:52:40 CET by

DailyTech reports a new 80 PLUS Platinum rating has been introduced. The new rating specifically targets datacenters and requires power supplies that deliver an efficiency of at least 90 percent at 20 percent load, 94 percent efficiency at half load and 91 percent efficiency at full load. HP is the first to announce a 80 PLUS Platinum power supply, consumer models may arrive in 2010.
A new Platinum certification level is being introduced, specifically targeting 230V internal power supplies in datacenter servers. These PSUs must be at least 90, 94 and 91 percent efficient at 20, 50 and 100 percent of rated load, and provide a Power Factor Correction of .95 or greater.

HP is the first to introduce these new high efficiency power supplies. No doubt consumer versions will be coming along next year.

“Customers are looking for the highest level of energy efficiency in products to reduce their overall business costs and their impact on the environment,” said McLeod Glass, the Group Manager for Industry Standard Servers at HP.
