Energy efficient


Crosspoint AM pedestals are not as power hungry as other pedestals available on the market. They use about 20% of the power that some competitors’ pedestals require and can be set to run in green mode.

As an example, let’s say the Crosspoint pedestal features one AM transceiver, and two AM receivers. If it runs in one store for 363 days of the year at a cost of $0.3 per kilowatt (local rate), that equates to:


  • Running in normal mode:
    • Annual Savings: $486.13
    • 10 years of  operation: $4,861.30


  • Running in green mode:
    • Annual Savings: $502.46
    • 10 years of operation: $5024.65
