According to the vendor, the Acrich 2 benefits from an increase of more than 90% in power efficiency by improving the power factor up to 97% compared to previous version of 'Acrich' from Seoul Semiconductor. Further, THD is lower than 25% to comply with local requirements. The device can be plugged directly into the wall receptacle, operating at supply voltages between 120 V and 264 V, the company said.
