Can Emerson slash your power bills by 20 per cent?

But look again, it's a thing of beauty because this monster could give you twenty per cent more power for your money, which amounts to a huge saving in a data centre. It might not save the planet, but it's a start.

Chloride at Emerson at Network Power, the UPS maker with a silly name but a huge social conscience, has answered our appeal for energy savings in IT.

Its engineers and researchers have been working on ways to get more usage out of existing electricity supplies. By redesigning its semiconductor technology, it has eliminated the need for transformers, which means you can get 20 per cent more usable (i.e. active) power out of your supply.

The device achieves a significant 98 percent throughput efficiency whilst conforming to all requirements for Tier 4 power protection.

So, twenty per cent off your data centre's electricity bills, then? It's probably not that simple. The device achieves a significant 98 percent throughput efficiency whilst conforming to all requirements for Tier 4 power protection.

Probably needs further investigation.
