1.1 This practice covers a procedure by which nonimpact personal computer printers, accessories, and similar office imaging devices can be tested for energy consumption.

1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Significance and Use

This practice provides a procedure for measuring the energy consumption of the product and associated accessories in various operating modes. It does not reflect the total energy required to produce a page. It does not, for example, include the energy required to manufacture the paper or the machine. It is intended to determine the energy requirements of products by a method that will permit accurate energy efficiency comparisons with similar products.
