I have installed one that pulled 3 amps according to the data plate, and a second that looked very much like the first that pulled 18 amps according to it's data plate.
You will have to get with the supplier and find out what is going to be installed.
The second one caused me a bit of trouble (rerun the feed to it after drywall and paint was done).
