AP 225 power usage

Hello

I was reading the data sheet i know the AP 225 is poe+

 

But let say im not using the USB and im just just one port of the AP

 

I read on the datasheet this

 

 Worst-case power consumption from the AP (excluding power drawn by an attached USB device):

- In restricted mode (PoE): 13.5W

- In unrestricted mode (PoE): 17W

- In unrestricted mode (DC): 15.5W

 

Does this mean that the AP 225 will use all his streams 3x3 in 2.4ghz and 5ghz  17 W?  i mean the AP wont go in conservative mode in which  you will see the PWR led going orage which means that its using1×3:1SS mode  ?

 

Now fallowing that logic 

I would need a switch with poe budget of 408W if i needed  to turn in all ports APS 225 without any restrictions  i mean 5ghz and 2.4ghz radios operating without restrictions

 

Did i undesrtand it correctly? or did i misunderstand?

 

Cheers

Carlos

Re: AP 225 power usage

Nice Collin thats good to know that i only need a switch of 400W to power up at least 23 APS 225 without any restrictions! :)

 

I  just wanted to be sure because if i needed 30W for each AP i would need then 690W and that swtich cost a lot more... 

This will help a lot

 

Thank you man!!!! for being always here :) 

 

Cheers

Carlos
