Note:

It may be necessary to calculate the Wattage and BTU output of the Barracuda Spam Firewall.

Terms:
Watts - It measures a rate of energy conversion.
BTU - A BTU, short for British Thermal Unit, is a basic measure of thermal (heat) energy.
Steps for Calculating:

1. Get the datasheet from Barracuda Website, found here: http://www.barracudanetworks.com/ns/products/spam_specs.php
2. To get wattage, multiply AC Input Current (amp) by 120Vac.
For example, model 800 is 4.1 amps 120 x 4.1 = 492 watts
3. To get BTU, multiply wattage by 3.412.
For example, 492 x 3.412 = 1679 BTU 4. AC systems are often rated in "tons."
4. To get the number of tons needed to cool a box, divide BTUs by 12,000.
For example: 1679 / 12000 = 0.14 tons of AC capacity.
