Development of Energy-Saving System Elements for Installation Measuring and Indicating Instruments

An environmentally-oriented design as well as the development of a switch power pack with small performance and high efficiency were in the center of attention for an environmentally-oriented product design. The capacity was reduced from 3.48 watts (old device) to 0.69 watts (new device). The reliability and life span were strongly increased by the small self-heating of the installation measuring devices. Thus it could be shown that with an environmentally-oriented design of electronic devices no compromises are necessary concerning their function and, furthermore, that they are also inexpensive and competitive (detail information in German).
