Energy-Efficient Management
Zyxel is dedicated to reducing the energy consumption of networking products and enhancing energy efficiency. This includes efforts to minimize energy loss from power conversion processes.

1. Choose a higher efficiency Power adapter from 77 percent to 83 percent to reduce energy lost from power conversion. Most of the Power adapters can support at least 85 percent active power efficiency.

2. The PoE feature supplies the actual watts that the devices need with auto-detection capability to reduce power consumption and increase the potential amount of connected power devices.

Zyxel is committed to integrating waste reduction, recycling, and disposal considerations into product design. This includes prioritizing repair, upgrade, reuse, and disassembly principles, aligning with the requirements of the WEEE directive, and fulfilling recycling responsibilities.
At Zyxel, sustainability is not just a commitment; it's a fundamental principle driving everything we do.
