Technologies today announced that it has been named an International CES Innovations 2010 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for the EmberCeptor Power Saving Devices. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 36 product categories.
Embertec Empowered products are the first to offer a fully automated power saving solution that is the ultimate answer to ALL forms of appliance power wastage; providing maximum energy savings, positive environmental impact and ease of use for the consumer.
Embertec's unique digital micro processor technology addresses both passive standby power (electricity that is used by appliances while they are turned off) and an even larger concern, but less reviewed active standby modes (wastage from devices left on but not being used), thus delivering maximum possible savings to the consumer.
The average consumption per household has been validated through independent field trials undertaken by Energy Consult Pty Ltd. (Report available on request). Average annual AV savings equal 837 kWh and in the average PC environment, consumers can expect to save on average 424 kWh per annum.
Embertec's digital technology works by monitoring and learning human interaction and a range of electrical parameters, then intuitively interpreting the information and finally controlling actual power needs. This means no change or interruption to consumers' daily life or habits. All they have to do is simply plug in and use!
The Computer Series is the only device of its type that functions accurately for all computers including laptops, netbooks and desktops, both PC and Mac; without dependence on a USB connection guaranteeing that one device will work for the lifetime of a PC environment. In summary, consumers get rapid payback and many years of savings!
The prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards have been recognising achievements in product design and engineering since 1976. It is sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), the producer of the International CES, the world's largest consumer technology tradeshow, and endorsed by the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA), the voice of industrial design, committed to advancing the profession through education, information, community and advocacy.
The Embertec Empowered Power Saving Technologies will be displayed at the 2010 International CES, which runs January 7-10, 2010 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Innovations Design and Engineering Showcase will feature honorees by product category in the Grand Lobby of the Las Vegas Convention Center and will also be featured at CES Unveiled: The Official Press Event of the International CES on Tuesday, January 5.
The Innovations entries are judged based on the following criteria:
• Engineering qualities, based on technical specs and materials used;
• Aesthetic and design qualities, using photos provided;
• The product's intended use/function and user value;
• Unique/novel features that consumers would find attractive;
• How the design and innovation of the product compares to other products in the marketplace.
Products chosen as an Innovations honoree reflect innovative design and engineering of the entries. Examples may include the first time various technologies are combined in a single product or dramatic enhancements to previous product designs.
Embertec (embertec.com) is an Australian company founded in 2004 focused on developing intelligent, power saving solutions for the consumer electronics and appliances industry utilizing a unique microprocessor controlled chip and supporting platform technology.
