If you know the actual power requirements, you can assume all that power goes into heat.

Thanks but the quickspecs does not give out BTU/HR, and the 20/40 gb drive is a DLT not a DAT.

Hi,

I thought you were requesting external DAT 40.

The closest I could get it's for DLT 35/70:


Power-Internal typical/maximum 37/47 Watts
Power-External typical/maximum 55/69 Watts
Voltage 90 to 254 VAC
Frequency 50 to 60 Hz

1 watt is about 3.41 BTU/HR.
You can take this as reference.
