Displays Key Product Criteria

On Mode Power Requirements

Maximum On Mode Power, PON_MAX
Screen Size Displays with Dp ≤20,000 pixels/in2 Displays with Dp > 20,000 pixels/in2
Computer Monitors, Signage Displays, and Digital Picture Frames
d<12.0 (6.0xr)+(0.05xA)+3.0 (6.0xr1 )+(3.0xr2 )+(0.05xA)+3.0
12.0≤d<17.0 (6.0xr)+(0.01xA)+5.5 (6.0xr1 )+(3.0xr2 )+(0.01xA)+5.5
17.0≤d<23.0 (6.0xr)+(0.025xA)+3.7 (6.0xr1 )+(3.0xr2 )+(0.025xA)+3.7
23.0≤d<25.0 (6.0xr)+(0.06xA)-4.0 (6.0xr1 )+(3.0xr2 )+(0.06xA)-4.0
25.0≤d ≤61.0 (6.0xr)+(0.1xA)-14.5 (6.0xr1 )+(3.0xr2 )+(0.1xA)-14.5
Signage Displays 30 Inches and Over
30.0≤d≤61.0 (0.27xA)+8.0 (0.27xA)+8.0

Dp is pixel density equal to the resolution in pixels divided by viewable screen area in inches squared

d is diagonal screen size in inches

r is resolution is screen resolution in megapixels

A is viewable screen area in inches squared

r1=(20,000xA)/106

r2=((Dp-20,000)xA)/106

Enhanced-Performance Display: A Computer Monitor that has all of the following features and functionalities: (a) A contrast ratio of at least 60:1 measured at a horizontal viewing angle of at least 85o, with or without a screen cover glass; (b) A native resolution greater than or equal to 2.3 megapixels (MP); and, (c) A color gamut size of at least sRGB as defined by IEC 61966 2-1. Shifts in colorspace are allowable as long as 99% or more of defined sRGB colors are supported.

For models meeting the definition of Enhanced-Performance Display, the following On Mode power allowance is added to the Maximum On Mode Power:
Diagonal screen size <27 inches: 0.30xPON_MAX
Diagonal screen size ≥27 inches: 0.75xPON_MAX

Automatic Brightness Control (ABC): The self-acting mechanism that controls the brightness of a display as a function of ambient light. Displays with ABC enabled by default are tested with ambient light at a level of 10 lux and 300 lux. If the On Mode power at 10 lux is at least 20% less than On Mode power at 300 lux, then the following On Mode power allowance is added to the Maximum On Mode Power: 0.10x PON_MAX.

Sleep Mode Power Requirements

Displays must meet the following Sleep Mode power requirements that take into account networking, bridging, and additional capabilities. Measured Sleep Mode power must be less than or equal to the following calculation.

Maximum Sleep Mode Power = 0.5 watts + PDN + PADD,

Where:

PDN is the sum of applicable Networking and Bridging Power Allowances in watts, as described in the table below, and

PADD is the sum of applicable Additional Capability Power Allowances in watts, as described in the table below.

Included Types Power (watts)
Bridging (PDN)
USB 1.x 0.1
USB 2.x 0.5
USB 3.x, DisplayPort (non-video connection), Thunderbolt 0.7
Networking (PDN)
Wi-Fi 2.0
Fast Ethernet 0.2
Gigabit Ethernet 1.0
Additional Capabilities (PADD)
Occupancy Sensor 0.5
Memory: Flash memory-card/smart-card readers, camera interfaces, PictBridge 0.2

Off Mode Power Requirements

Displays need not have an Off Mode for certification. For Displays that do offer an Off Mode, measured Off Mode power shall be less than or equal to 0.5 watts.
