Genelec Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS™) Technology

Genelec Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS™) TechnologyIntroduced early 2013, Genelec’s Intelligent Signal Sensing, ISS™, technology has been developed to meet with both European Union ErP Directives for electronic devices and the company’s own wider sustainability commitments.

The Intelligent Signal Sensing, ISS™ circuitry tracks the signal input of the monitor and detects if it is in use. If the ISS circuit does not find any audio on the input for a period of time, it sets the monitor to a low-power sleep state and the monitor will consume less than 0.5 watts. When an input signal is detected, the monitor immediately turns itself on. Basically, the monitoring system will start saving power as soon as work is interrupted.

The mains power switch remains the only way to turn the monitor off completely.
