HP Z Workstations
The HP Z Workstations family, including the HP Z200, Z400, Z600, and Z800 workstations, continues the company’s use of new technology designed to improve environmental impacts along with excellent performance, value, and serviceability. These workstations are the culmination of more than 20 HP design innovations, including, on the HP Z600 and Z800 workstations, a self-checking power supply that can be removed from the system with no tools and plugged directly into the power cord, where an LED indicates whether or not the power supply is good, making them easier to service.
These workstations are aimed at power-intensive applications in industries such as graphic arts, broadcast, computer-aided design, engineering, medical imaging, and oil and gas exploration. HP Z Workstations save energy with the energy-efficient Intel® Xeon® processor and include 85% efficient power supplies—reducing both overall energy use and waste heat. The HP Z800 Workstation also has an option for an 89% efficient power supply.
The family includes the new HP WattSaver—an HP exclusive feature that manages power in the “off” state between 0.5 and 1 watt when activated by the customer, compared with 2 to 6 watts for a typical product. The HP Z Workstations immediately qualified for the ENERGY STAR® 5.0 standard in July 2009.
All HP Z Workstations are more than 90% recyclable by weight, and the line achieved the Gold rating in the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT®)—the highest rating available. HP SkyRoom, virtual collaboration, and video conferencing software that can decrease the need for business travel, is included free on HP Z Workstations.
