## Re: How many amps does a CS220 take or need?

Hi Juan,

The 220 draws up to 500W so Power (in Watts) = volts x current (in Amps). In the UK that would be I (in amps) = P (in Watts) divided by V(volts). So 500/240 = 2.0833333 amps.

Regards,

Mark.

From the current Nimble Storage Hardware Guide:

• CS210: 450W

• CS200 series: 500W

• CS400 series: 550W

• ES series: 400W

• Steady state: 5A @ 120V

• Startup: 6A @ 120V

Caution: Startup current draw may exceed that 6A.
