Getting serious about sustainability strategies


Energy costs can account for more than 50% of the total operating expenses of a data centre, so it’s no surprise that data centre operators, manufacturers, and suppliers are looking for ways to reduce energy bills. One solution is to continuously improve energy efficiency through the use of cost-effective infrastructure and equipment.

HARTING’s Han-Eco connectors can reduce the electricity consumption for connection technology by up to 50% compared to standard CEE interfaces by using low-impedance contacts. This reduces the power lost in connections and significantly improves the Power Usage Efficiency (PUE) of data centres.
