Hi all, I'm trying to calculate the power consumption for NX-8235-G5 which I should divide the load by half based on the 8035-G5 specs in the link below.

Would this means the power consumption for 8235 is 311W on average with +/-20% ?

The 8235 is 2 x 8035's in a 2U container sharing a set of power supplies combined into what Nutanix calls an appliance. The specs are per appliance.

Correct, all of the specs assume a fully loaded appliance, so if you take what is listed and divide by two, you'll get roughly accurate.
