OBH Nordica Antares 7519
Check testing of the OBH Nordica Antares 7519 Microwave measured standby power consumption at 1.45W, exceeding the limit of 1.00W for products with an electronic display.
The project team carried out a full test on the microwave against EN 50564:2011. This again measured comfortably higher than the limit, at 1.38W (click table for larger image)
By the time the full test had been conducted, this model appeared to be discontinued. Subsequently, MarketWatch carried out further testing on a sample of a model from OBH Nordica’s current range.
The project team has informed OBH Nordica of the result and are awaiting response.
