Energy efficiency for buildings and commercial, industrial and professional space is on the rise, fostered in the U.S. by the LEED Program and globally by other governmental and utility initiatives. The result is demand for increased functionality in the intelligent appliances that monitor and control energy consumption. The overall size is important since the solutions need to fit into a standard electrical box or to meet other ergonomic or aesthetic needs. Additionally, the power consumption of the unit itself is important and may not be achieved by inefficient linear supplies or do-it-yourself discrete switching designs. And of course, safety and FCC requirements must be satisfied.
Bias Power is a member of the Enocean Alliance.
Bias Powers micro-miniature ac/dc modules are a perfect solution for powering intelligent sensors and controls. Bias 1/2W, 1W and 2W modules provide efficiencies of 75%+ and are as small as 0.55 cubic inch. Not only do these turnkey, drop-in modules allow you to quickly complete your design, they have full safety recognition which greatly reduces the processing time needed for UL or other agency certification of your appliance. And because the Bias power modules meet FCC EMI requirements, you are one step closer to final EMI compliance.
