    Hello,
    I want to use a EX4200-48T , but i want to know how much power they consume? in their datasheet says 130w is for POE and 190w for the switch, if i disable poe it will consume 190w?
    Thank you.

    A switch and any electrical device will not consume more power than it actually needs at any given time. For the EX4200, I suspect that the fans and the CPU will be the driving factors (apart from PoE which you indicate you will not use). If you keep the switch cool by mounting it in a cool room with at least some ventilation and don't use the CPU too much, the CPU will not draw too much power and the fans will stay calm.

    If you disable PoE, it will draw 190 W tops, and almost always a lot less.
