MotomoTechWon, a company based in Korea, has developed a smart PC that does not consume any standby power. The energy and environmental-friendly device company has adopted green technology for developing the new 'SAVE PC' eco-friendly computer with 'Standby Power Cutoff Apparatus for Computer'(SPCAC) chip.
MotomoTechWon claims the product to be the first of its kind in the world. The company has implemented a core technology in the computer that has the capability to prevent any leakage of standby power. The leakage can be prevented by 100% to 0 W.
Electric appliances consume electric power even when they are turned off. They consume power as long as they are plugged in to power sockets. Appliances including electric rice cookers, refrigerators, washing machines, gas stoves, TVs, and computers consume standby power. Personal computers consume 142 kWh of standby power annually and they cost 17,000 won. This consumption leads to CO2 emission of 65 kg.
The President of MotomoTechWon, Jeon Yeong-suk stated that an enormous amount of money is being wasted through standby power. Power leaks through the plugs of appliances on standby power. The company’s innovation cuts down energy consumption and fulfills the norms of the climate change convention regarding standards for carbon reduction.
The innovative SPCAC chip can reduce power consumption charges by 10% and lower CO2 emission by 3 kg annually, while completely blocking the leakage of standby power. The chip turns off its power switch to completely block consumption of standby power.
The chip cannot be dismantled. If the SPCAC chip is removed from the circuit board, then the chip’s circuits will break. These functionalities are designed to prevent duplication.
The MotomoTechWon SAVE PC will be launched in March 2012.
