ANAHEIM, CA—Extron Electronics has received Energy Efficiency Certification (EEC) from UL Environment. UL Environment acts as an independent third party to test and certify products for compliance to a broad range of domestic and international energy efficiency requirements. Several Extronengineered products now carry the EEC mark, signifying compliance with multiple government energy efficiency standards, including strict adherence to U.S. EPA Energy Star Version 2.0 requirements.

UL Environment performed extensive testing before qualifying Extron designed and engineered PS Series Desktop Power Supplies under the Energy Star Single Voltage External AC-AC and AC-DC Power Supplies Specification Version 2.0 and the professional XTRA Series Power Amplifiers under Energy Star Audio/ Video Specification 2.0 program requirements.

Extron Electronics also achieved another milestone in reaching the 1,000,000 hour mark in demonstrated Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF). The power supplies were subjected to extreme testing in an in-house heating chamber that supports elevated temperature as well as constant temperature conditions over the course of two years.
