Power Amperage Drawn at Bootup on FLEX-6400

The 6400 specifications state that its power draw is 1.7A Receive Typ., 23A Transmit Max. What is the typical amperage drawn by the 6400 at bootup?

Thanks,
Mark

    I suspect it would be fairly low -- probably close to the 1.7A or less on receive. There's no big need for a power 'surge' on bootup like in the old tube rigs...

    Testing a 6500, the "off" current was 170mA and maximum current during boot was 1.33A as measured by a Powerwerx Watt Meter // Power Analyzer.

An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
