FUD Zilla met with Innovabite at CeBIT and got to see a new power supply technology that completely eliminates power consumption when the PC is off. Current power supplies can consume several Watts when your computer is off, but starting in 2014, every electronic device sold in the EU will have to consume 0W in "off" state. The company achieves the 0W mode by providing a direct connection between the front button and the power supply:
Innovabite comes with an idea how to achieve 0 W in standby, providing the front button with a direct connection to the PSU. Using their technology, it is possible to automatically drive the PC into another type of standard “Standby Mode” called “Off Mode”, with 0W consumption and complete separation (2-pole) from 230 net.
All Innovabite power supplies come with 80 plus certificate and are equipped with a so-called mode-switch. This mode allows you to switch the device either in the "nonstandby" mode or in a classic soft-off mode. Later it will be possible to include LAN card directly into PSU, what will offer system administrators the way to start PC from everywhere and update it.
