How much power (watt) does the Cloud Connector consume?

The average power consumption of the Cloud Connector will vary depending on whether Ethernet or Cellular mode is used.

When using Cellular, the power consumption is also dependent on the signal coverage and the selected radio access technology (2G, 3G, or 4G). For example, the Cloud Connector consumes the least power when running on Ethernet and the most when running on Cellular with poor signal quality conditions.

The Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) supply of the Cloud Connector is designed to be IEEE 802.3at Type 1 (or 802.3af Class 1) compliant. According to the same PoE standard, PoE switches, routers, or injectors designed as a Power-Sourcing-Equipment (PSE) will be guaranteed to deliver sufficient power to the Cloud Connector. All passive PoE injectors that deliver 37-57V will also work, but you will need to ensure they can provide sufficient power.

Power consumption

Average <5W (3W typical)
Peak <19W (<5ms)

Cloud Connector EU 3G/2G

The power usage calculation applies to the Cloud Connector 4G variant, but the Cloud Connector EU 3G/2G has similar power consumption.
