2008/09/04

Elsa Technology, a professional graphic maker, launched its three new products including own brand motherboard (model no.: G431M-C2) together with matching graphic card (model no.: Gladiac 950GT), Elsa PAL Book III (model no.: e-R800-W) and AC LED MEPP for the third quarter at Taipei San Want Hotel. According to Mr. Marco Chen, the vice president of Elsa Technology, said these products are primarily consumer oriented in design such as high-performance motherboard with gaming graphic cards, the lightest first generation mini-type notebook PC (just weighs 681 grams) and high-energy saving AC LED bulb.

Three new products as follows:

Elsa Technology is proud to be the first company to introduce advanced high energy-saving AC LED MEPP, which was developed by the company's own R&D group through application of new technology and concepts. The engineers put high-tech circuitry of LED components with cooling liquid inside the AC LED MEPP and enclosure with 100 percent recyclable materials such as glass and metal contacts. Moreover, the wattage rating of AC LED MEPP is only 4 watts that saves a lot of electricity with the same wattage of the leading items such as electronic fluorescent bulb (wattage rating of 13W) and incandescent bulb (wattage rating of 40 W). The heat generated from the electronics fluorescent lamp and incandescent bulb is wasted compared to a fraction of heat generated by ELSA's AC LED. Thus, ELSA AC LED lighting provides 90 percent of energy saving (saving of over US$120 per year on average usage of 10 hours per day) and the lifetime of bulb is 50 times (50,000 hours) longer than incandescent bulb. The meaning of word MEPP stands for the saving Money, saving Energy, saving Power and environmental Protection.
