The Energy Consumption of a small bank machine for one day is 5.52kWh.

I calculated it using the numbers from the previous response. Calculations are below, if you’re interested.

Power consumption of ATM machine:

2.0A @ 115 VAC at 60 Hz

1.0A @ 230 VAC at 50 Hz

You can use these numbers to calculate the Power consumtion. Power = Amps X Voltage = 2.0A X 115V = 230W = 0.23kW.

What you want to find though is the Energy consumption, which is the Power used X Time. That will give you an answer in kilowatt hours (kWh), which is the same units as your electric bill.

So let’s calculate the energy consumed by a (small) ATM in one day:

Energy = Power X Time = 0.23kWh X 24h = 5.52kWh
