PowerStic and Exodus Performance in Local Business Computing

Local Business Computing Hardware has come to include a wide range of device types ranging from Point of Sale terminals, which are essentially modified PCs and Laptop devices with peripherals, to network routers, display monitors, etc.

If these machines have USB ports (most do today),the PowerStic and Exodus products save Kilowatt-hrs of energy (money) and extend battery life when business computing devices are active, CurrentRF thus providing products and a service to power conscious customers that compliments their existing power saving strategies. While all other power reduction products save power by turning unused portions of business computing devices “off” when they go inactive, we operate and save power (money) and extend battery life when these machines and networks “wake up” and are active.

The PowerStic and Exodus devices allow business users to save kilowatt hours of energy when plugged into any empty USB port in any computer, network device, or any business computing device, enabling each device to run at an overall lower system power profile and at lower monthly electrical costs, generating exponential savings over time.

Amazingly, although we harvest energy from unused USB ports, the mechanism by which PowerStic and Exodus power harvesting and recycling occurs has nothing to do with USB port operation, but is simply a byproduct of the action of the PowerStic and Exodus circuits, combined with the high frequency coupling that occurs throughout any data processing system(See our PowerStic and Exodus System Theory doc here). The USB port connection is simply a convenient, accessible port that allows the PowerStic and Exodus to function as a power reduction device in these systems.

We estimate that with even moderate data processing activity in data servers and networks, the initial investment in your PowerStic and Exodus device(s) will be recovered within three months of operation!

Testing our claims

To demonstrate how much money you can save utilizing the PowerStic and Exodus devices in your business machines, we offer ”loaner devices” for a specified period of time.

We also offer on-site services to Power Analyze the computing devices in your business, with and without the PowerStic Inserted, show you the power and money one will save, and retrofit a PowerStic or Exodus device that will reduce your overall carbon footprint.

The CC_100, PowerStic, and Exodus Technology Overview.pdf gives a general technical overview of these devices with emphasis on the CC-100 at the core of the performance of PowerStic and Exodus The overview shows the problems that this IC solves and the design and characterization correlation seen in testing.
The article PowerStic Enabled Workstation, Point-of-Sale Terminal, and Server Power Reduction.pdf shows recorded data on HP workstation, Point-of-Sale Terminal, and server testing using test stimulus video, as well as statistical analysis of gathered data, and the testing procedures used to gather the power saving data.
The PowerStic_Exodus_Local_Business_Savings.pdf shows various examples of workstation, Point-of-Sale Terminal, and server performance using an Onset data logging meter for various time intervals, and shows not only PowerStic performance in terms of average power saved and statistics on the gathered data, but also demonstrates CurrentRF testing capabilities in these matters.
