I want to install tooway in a remote house in Spain which uses solar panels. I have been told that it uses 200 watts but that seems too much for this type of device. For example, An ADSL modem only uses about 8 watts.

If it uses much more than 80 watts it would be too much or I would have to spend a lot on new solar panels.

I have asked a couple of companies and nobody seems to know how many watts it uses.

Does anyone who already has it have a power meter???

I will measure the next install I do which is next week and post the results here.
I travel all over Spain, so I'd be happy to drop in if you let me know where you are and I'm passing by.

The external transformer is labeled 30V - 2.5 amps so I asume it will be max 75 watt.
