New Autostart Feature for Genelec 4000 Series
The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive 2009/125/EC establishes minimum eco-design requirements for energy related products and comes into force on 6 January 2013. The directive requires that standby power consumption for any product is under 0.5W and Genelec has developed a new Autostart feature that guarantees compliance with the directive. The new feature is available on products from across the Genelec monitor portfolio, including the 4000 Series which is designed specifically for the fixed installation market.
“The responsibility for compliance with this directive rests with product manufacturers,” says Lars-Olof Janflod, Marketing and PR Director at Genelec. “We’ve decided to embrace the new regulation and take it as an opportunity to further advance the technical capabilities of our monitors. The Autostart feature ensures our monitors meet the power consumption requirements for standby and off mode and typifies how we now embed environmental thinking into our product designs.”
The Genelec 4000 Series active loudspeakers are perfectly suited to music playback- whatever the chosen environment. Allied to the premium performance is the Genelec’s renowned design and build quality which combines top quality materials with stylish looks, to make the 4000 Series the benchmark for loudspeakers in the fixed installation sector.
