Enhancing Energy Efficiency with PROMISE Technology As energy costs rise and businesses look to use power in more sustainable ways, PROMISE is making strides to offer technology solutions that better manage resources and waste. Since disk drives comprise 70 percent of the total power usage of the subsystem, PROMISE provides its customers with a tiered method to power management that is user configurable and adaptable to application environments.
Green Design Using PROMISE’s stepwise process, users can configure different levels of power stages. Each step in the power management level is designed to save power. From the Active state to Level 1 when drive heads are unloaded, there is a 10 – 20% power savings. Level 2 with lower spindle speeds has a savings of 30 – 40%. Level 3, when drives are spinning down, promotes 70 – 80% in power savings. Additionally, when needed, the entire process can be skipped pending user discretion.
PROMISE mitigates environmental impact by developing green products that reduce power consumption. We have adopted a high-efficiency power supply with 80PLUS Bronze/Silver/Gold certification for the Vess and VTrak product lines with MAID 2.0 support and On/Off power scheduling.
Green Production All PROMISE products are RoHS, WEEE, ISO1401 and REACH compliant. And, we are reducing the use of hazardous materials like Pb, Cd, Br and halogens in all our products. PCB boards in PROMISE products are halogen free and are used in NPG150 in x30 products. PROMISE has also made a commitment to increase its usage of recycled materials whenever prudent.
With PROMISE, It’s Easy Being Green Through our commitment to green technology, PROMISE is transforming the ways in which we manage our environmental challenges. We are using power in a more sustainable way and are working with our partners and customers to better manage resources and waste.
