USG-Pro-4 Real life power consumption

Hi

 

How much power does the USG-Pro-4 use in real life ?

 

The max power consumption is set to 40 watt...

 

I currently own the USG and it is set to max. 7 watt, but measured with Mfi power outlet my USG use from 7,35 to 9,5 watt

 

Measured over 30 days my USG use 6,9 watt/hour....

 

So does anyone have some real life data from the USG-Pro-4 :-)

In an entirely unscientific test, my USG Pro 4 drew ~15 watts @ .21 amps while idling.

The ~15wt shown above is typical.

@smawuascht Hope this helps:

 

This APC UPS has 2 Smart Outlets (ports).  Smart Outlet 1 (stats pictured below) has USG 4 Pro connected to it.  Below data shows energy usage on Smart Outlet 1.  The log blow shows weekly energy usage by USG 4 Pro.

Hi @Jardin_Espanol,

 

Thanks for your reply. I'm not sure to which device you're refering.
The screenshot shows the complete consumption from the devices connected to your UPS right.

I doubt that you only have the USG connected there.

I calculated the kwh and the hours your provided - this wouöd lead to a total wattage of 105W which would be waaaaay to much for only the USG alone.

Thanks
Greets

Re: USG-Pro-4 Real life power consumption

Thanks, but still 105W is a bit to high ;-)

But as the UBNT guy replied - the 15W are typical

I'm curious - is this a software from your UPS isntalled on a client, or is this a Webinterface?

It’s web interface of the UPS.
