    Default Old Hub Power Usage

    Hi All,

    I am wondering if anyone is familiar with the "DFE-932RX" 32port 100mbit Hub (from D-Link). I am looking to find out the power usage of this beast (ie how many watts it uses). I cant find a copy of the manual for it anywhere, and its not marked on it (i even opened it up to look on the power supply)

    Cheers
    Daniel

    If you get stuck, buy a $15 clamp meter from the Warehouse, slice the OUTER insulation (don't strip the wire!) of a power cable (AC) that goes to it, and clip it on ONE of the AC wires (brown/blue or red/black). It will tell you the current that the hub is drawing, so multiply it by 230V and you have your wattage.

    The other possibly easier way is if you have a power box with individual wires going into the power meter (that you have very easy access to without taking it off), then just clip the meter on one of them, and your current draw is the difference between when the hub is on and when it's off.
