GWS 250W Power Supplies

Home automation systems are becoming ever popular to help enhance convenience, safety, comfort, and energy efficiency of our homes. Simple, low-cost and reliable wireless networking is a key enabler for this technology, turning our once mundane homes into intelligent ones – everything from remote control of our central heating and lighting systems to surround sound throughout. However, some of the elements within these systems are battery-powered and therefore require a sophisticated charging station. A manufacturer of these battery chargers is using the ErP-compliant GWS from TDK-Lambda, which features a standby power draw of less than 0.5 Watt and an average active efficiency of 92.7% at 230V.
