    • (ii) with the information display inactive, and

    • (iii) without the information display;

  • (c) if it has standby mode, the period, expressed in minutes, that begins when standby mode is enabled and ends when the measurement of power consumption in standby mode is completed; and

  • (d) if it has off mode, its power consumption, expressed in watts, in off mode.

SUBDIVISION DExternal Power Supplies

Marginal note:Definitions

  •  (1) The following definitions apply in this Subdivision.

    adaptive external power supply

    adaptive external power supply means an external power supply that, without user intervention and while it is connected to mains power and each output is connected to a load, can alter the output voltage using a digital communication protocol with the end-use product. (bloc d’alimentation externe adaptatif)

    CSA C381.1

    CSA C381.1 means the CSA standard CAN/CSA-C381.1-08 entitled Test method for calculating the energy efficiency of single-voltage external ac-ac and ac-ac power supplies. (CSA C381.1)

    CSA C381.1-17

    CSA C381.1-17 means the CSA standard CAN/CSA C381.1-17 entitled Energy performance of external ac-dc and ac-ac power supplies. (CSA C381.1-17)

    detachable battery pack

    detachable battery pack means a battery that is encased in an enclosure separate from an end-use product and that is designed to be removed or disconnected from the end-use product for recharging. (bloc-batterie amovible)

    direct operation external power supply

    direct operation external power supply means a power supply device that is capable of operating an end-use product, other than a battery charger, without the assistance of a battery. (bloc d’alimentation externe à fonctionnement direct)

    external power supply

    external power supply means a single-voltage external power supply or a multiple-voltage external power supply that is designed to be used with a household or office end-use product that constitutes the primary load. It does not include

    • (a) a direct operation external power supply that has a nominal output voltage of less than 3 V and a nominal output current of 1 000 mA or more and that charges the battery of an end-use product that is fully or primarily motor-operated;

    • (b) an indirect operation external power supply that has a nominal output power of greater than 250 W;

    • (c) a device that powers the charger of a detachable battery pack of an end-use product;

    • (d) a device that is an accessory to a medical device; or

    • (e) a device that is solely designed to power solid-state lighting or a ceiling fan that has a direct current motor. (bloc d’alimentation externe)

    indirect operation external power supply
