Chapter 4 Birth of Setsuden-mushi (a profitmaking device) 4.2 Setsuden-mushi's Growth Expectations and Setbacks 4.2.6 Internet 220.127.116.11 Global Brain (2)
After much trial and error, I was able to create a device that can basically answer the above questions, so I thought I'd post it here for everyone to see.
For the past two years or so, I have been working on the development of a technology to automatically cut the unnecessary standby electricity consumption of information equipment as an extension of my hobby (?), and the result was in the Nikkei Sangyo Shimbun, technical magazines such as JETRO's technology introduction magazine to overseas, and local economic magazines. The result was also introduced on Hiroshima Television (HTV) on April 12, 1996. (https://onedrive.live.com/?id=73F6FE1FAE69DA2F%21225&cid=73F6FE1FAE69DA2F)
In 1995, the second year of its development, it was recognized as a subsidy project for new technology development by the Hiroshima Industrial Promotion Organization and received a subsidy.
The genesis of the technology development was my realization that it is strange that fax machines continue to consume electricity when they are not doing their job of sending and receiving. I realized that it was wrong to keep consuming electricity when it was not sending or receiving messages. The estimated cost of wasted electricity, or electricity that could be saved, amounts to about 400 billion yen in Japan alone. What do you feel about this?
So, I'm asking for your help in introducing this power saving technology, and applying and transferring the technology both in Japan and overseas, through internet websites (*) and other means.
The SOD (Switch on Demand), a power saving device, introduced in these articles is a device that automatically cuts the standby electricity consumption of information equipment (computers, facsimile machines, etc.). In other words, it is a device that enables you to remotely control the power supply of the other party's information equipment from your side. In other words, you can remotely control the power supply of the other party's information equipment from your side. Those who use this equipment will directly get benefit from the savings in electricity rates, and indirectly and automatically contribute to environmental conservation through energy conservation.
However, at this early stage of development, the equipment we are proposing has a small production lot of 100 units, and if it were to be sold through conventional distribution channels, the price would be about twice the initial target price of 12,000 yen, which is not cheap. However, through direct sales channels such as the Internet, it is possible to reduce the price to ¥6,000, about half of the initial target price of 12,000 yen for an order lot of 100 units without using unnecessary packaging boxes.
We hope that you will take a look at our KEC / virtual store page when you have time, and give us your criticism and guidance, so that you can understand the power saving technology by SOD to protect the beautiful nature and environment of Japan and the world. Of course, we will continue to reduce the price and enhance the functions and safety.
Sample equipment for trial use is available upon request, please contact us by e-mail or facsimile machines. （Please contact us by e-mail or facsimile machines at the following address (please pay about 600 yen for shipping).
As a side note, our facsimile machines are connected to SOD Setsuden-mushi, which has been cutting standby electricity consumption for about two years, and we have never had any trouble with customers who send us their data. If you send a test message, you will find that you can send it without any discomfort as well as before. (The power consumption of the power saving device itself during standby is zero.)
We believe that power saving and environmental protection can only be meaningful with the consent and participation of as many people as possible, no matter how small they are.
That's all. If you have any comments or criticisms, please send an e-mail to the following address. Please feel free to reprint the above content.
