TEMPUS-1S DAB Radio

PURE's third generation TEMPUS-1S has a new look, improved audio and a host of new features.  It is also a member of the PURE EcoPlus product family.  EcoPlus™ is a statement of PURE’s on-going environmental commitment.  It indicates that environmental impact has been considered in the design, manufacture and transport of the product, and has driven both what we do and how we do it."  EcoPlus products are designed and manufactured to minimise their environmental impact, with:

"Reduced power consumption
At the heart of EcoPlus is the requirement to reduce the power consumption of our products while playing audio and also in standby. To demonstrate this we have measured the active and standby power consumption of the top 10 selling DAB portable and DAB clock radios of 2006, and showed them side by side with our EcoPlus products. An example of the comparison for Siesta is shown below.

Use of materials from recycled and sustainable sources
All EcoPlus products are packaged using cardboard produced with a minimum of 70% recycled material, and finished using water-based varnish. All internal pulp trays are 100% recycled, and the user documentation is printed on 100% recycled paper using Soya-based inks. We also encourage our customers to recycle all packaging materials.

Optimum packaging size
For some time it has been common in the consumer electronics industry to package products in boxes which are larger than required so that the boxes stand out more prominently on the retail shelf. The boxes of EcoPlus products are designed to be the smallest they can be whilst still ensuring the integrity and security of the product inside. This maximises the number of products which can be shipped in each container, and thus minimises the environmental cost of transport.

Components with minimised environmental impact
All electronic products contain printed circuit boards, electronic components and metals, as well as using chemicals during manufacture. The RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) standard mandates that products should contain restricted quantities of lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB’s) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE’s). All PURE products conform to the RoHS standard."

"At PURE we’re realistic, and know that there are always improvements to be made - that’s why EcoPlus doesn’t stop here. We’ve made significant changes to our products and working practices, but there is plenty more to do and EcoPlus will evolve with time to further decrease our impact on the environment."

If you have any thoughts, suggestions or questions then please contact us at ecoplus@pure.com."
