Change the power supply and save money ex. AS-204TE

Postby Juerg_Tech » Wed Jan 04, 2017 6:02 am

Hallo,

I have the product AS-204TE with 4 WD Red harddisk 3TB.
In comparison with other NAS producer this NAS need more power.
With the origin power supply:
Shut down with wake on Lan: 23 Watt
Power On all 4 harddisk work: 62 Watt

So I change the origin power supply. I use a 120W 12V power supply and a 90W pico PSU adapter for the NAS mainboard.
Now the measurement looks very good:
Shut down with wake on Lan: 4...6 Watt
Power On all 4 harddisk are sleepink: 23 Watt
Power On all 4 harddisk work: 41...43 Watt

regards,
Jürgen

:o I'm surprised. My AS-304T consumes only about 1W when I put NAS to sleep mode (wake-up-on-LAN is enabled). Did you mean that "Standy by with wake on Lan" is sleep mode?

Your result is very different from mine.

I got power consumption arround 1W with the following condition:
- NAS Sleep
- Power Configuration: EuP Mode Configuration: Disable
- Power Configuration: Settings: with Wake-on-Lan (WOL)

And power consumption is less than 1W with the following condition:
- NAS Shut down
- Power Configuration: EuP Mode Configuration: Disable
- Power Configuration: Settings: with Wake-on-Lan (WOL)
