Details

Power supply units in the UNAS Tower chassis and all of the rackmount chassis will automatically detect the proper input voltage.

For G and V series cases, the input voltage must be set with a switch on the back.

The only power option specifically set in the bios is "Restore after AC loss" or something similarly named, and it should be set to [Last State] or [Memory]. This ensures the device will power on and resume normal behavior upon restoration of power in the event of a power outage.

Environmental Requirements

The temperature and humidity requirements are the same for every unit:

  • Optimum environmental temperature: 5°C ~ 35°C (41°F ~ 95°F) 
  • Optimum environmental humidity: 10% ~ 85% (non-condensing)

Power Draws

Datto appliances are putting between a 40% to 80% load on the PSU, so the power draw for each device will be less than the wattage of the power supply.

  • Rackmounts use approximately 40% to 60% of the PSU.
  • Towers use approximately 70% to 80% of the PSU.
