If connected to Aerohive PSE device you can read it of there. As for getting that info of AP170 directly, I don't know.

Will find and get back.

we are not using Aerohive PSE, but PoE 24v in 48v out (802.3af).

Lior,

The only accurate way to get a measurement of the power consumed is from the PSE device. This is because the length (and type) of the POE cable affects the amount of electricity actually used to power the AP.

I'm not aware of any way to view the current power consumption from the AP.
