Re: Conversion of Amps to BTU
I do not see any direct conversion between them.
Can you provide more information as to exactly what you are trying to do?

Re: Conversion of Amps to BTU
We are currently trying to figure out total BTU values in our Server room so we can have a total BTU value to know if we need to upgrade and the our Security camera equipment only gives us values in Amps and not BTU's. I am unable to convert amps to BTUs and would like to find a way to convert amps to BTU's.

Re: Conversion of Amps to BTU
Btu is a unit of energy not power, not sure why you would need Btu values. Usually things like backup power supplies are rated in Watts or kilowatts.
But here is how you would do it. Amps * Volts = Watts Watts * hours = watthours watthours * 3.41214148 = Btu So you would need to know amps, volts (usually 120 or 240), and the number of hours.

I'm trying to figure out what the BTU rating is on equipment so I can calculate the amount of air conditioning needed for the equipment room.

Re: Conversion of Amps to BTU
IF anybody still needs this.... I have NOT verified accuracy, just found it at another website.
To determine the heat load of any electronic appliance, perform the following calculations: Determine the voltage and amp rating of the power supply of the appliance. This information is usually located either in the appliance documentation or on the appliance itself near the power receptacle. Multiply the voltage by the amperage to determine watts. For example, a DSR4020 switch has a power supply rated for 110 volts at .5 amps (per the back panel data). Its wattage is 55. Multiply the watts by 3.413 to get BTUs/hour. For example, a DSR4020 switch produces 187.7 BTUs/hour, based on the values obtained in step 2.
