B11 Real World Power Draw

Can anyone tell me what they see for power draw on the POE input to a B11? Sizing my solar system for the product and would like to know how many watts people actually see. I know it’s rated for 30W max power consumption.

I see a pretty significant amount of fluctuation from my B11s depending on how wide of a channel I am using.

I have a tower with 2 of them being fed with a Netonix switch. Here are some pictures I have. The first one is passing much more bandwidth then the other on is but has 2x40 channels

2x80 channels

When sizing for solar it is pretty wise to assume the specified power usage, it’s always better to have more then enough batteries then just barely not enough.

Great information. Thanks for the help. Will be sizing for 30W continuous but it’s good to know I’ll have some margin.
