Ultra-Low Power Consumption

The Ultra-Low Power icon proudly displayed on our product pages refers to our proprietary Sylvac System, a patented marvel of engineering. This system stands as a testament to our dedication to sustainability and performance. It is a revolutionary solution that leverages impulsion and magnetic power recuperation, resulting in an unparalleled reduction in power consumption. By utilizing this technology, we’ve achieved a feat that has transformed the landscape of metrology instruments worldwide.


But what exactly do we mean by “ultra low consumption”?


Let’s delve into the specifics using our S_Cal Evo caliper as an illuminating example. When this caliper is engaged in measurement mode, it draws a mere 175 microwatts (µW) of power. In standby mode, the consumption is further minimized to just 40 µW. To put this into perspective, let’s compare these figures to a similar caliper from the competition, which consumes a significantly higher 350 µW during measurement and 110 µW in standby mode.

To illustrate the scale of our achievement, consider the following: A standard television in standby mode consumes around 0.1 watts. In stark contrast, our S_Cal Evo caliper’s energy-efficient performance means it consumes 2800 times less power than a TV in standby mode. This translates into an exceptional battery life of up to 8000 hours in normal workshop use.


Advantages of Extended Battery Life:

  1. Reduced Maintenance: Sylvac’s ultra low power consumption technology significantly extends battery life, reducing the need for frequent replacements and minimizing maintenance efforts.
  2. Uninterrupted Workflow: With longer battery life, our metrology instruments offer uninterrupted operation, preventing disruptions caused by frequent battery changes.
  3. Enhanced Efficiency: The extended usage hours provided by our energy-efficient technology increase productivity and efficiency in your workspace.
  4. Cost Savings: Fewer battery replacements translate into lower operational costs over time, optimizing your investment in Sylvac’s metrology instruments.
