Our wide lineup of products, including 48 V-compatible products, helps our customers to build the ideal power supply systems for their applications. We will continue to promote the reorganization and optimization of power supply systems in the data center market and elsewhere. Our results for fiscal 2020 are as follows.
Contribution toward conserving energy
For our high-power products, approximately 80% of our power supply products that have received the 80 PLUS certification have been certified TITANIUM, which is the highest level 80 PLUS certification available. We have also been able to reduce the power consumption of systems 10% by switching them over to centralized power supplies (according to Murata test results*1).
We also help to reduce running costs by decreasing the number of power supplies installed to systems, reducing the amount of maintenance stock, and making products easier to maintain.
*1 Two racks with the same IT devices were prepared, with one rack using conventional power supplies and the other using a centralized power supply, and then the same program was run on both to compare the power supplied to each rack
Promoting energy conservation
Helping to conserve space and increase loading efficiency
For our low-power products, we have reduced space required by 79% (representative models) to help conserve space, and have reduced weight by 70% (representative models) to help improve loading efficiency, compared with conventional products.

A focus on high efficiency
80 PLUS is a program promoted by the 80 PLUS Program (http://www.80plus.org) to reduce the power of electric devices. Certification is split into six ranks in order from highest to lowest conversion efficiency: 80 PLUS TITANIUM, 80 PLUS PLATINUM, 80 PLUS GOLD, 80 PLUS SILVER, 80 PLUS BRONZE, and 80 PLUS (standard).
Murata offers many products rated 80 PLUS TITANIUM, the highest of the six ranks, and continues to work toward achieving TITANIUM certification for all products.
