In Reply to: power supply for image scanner posted by Jeff Bates on 01/26/00 at 10:57 PM:
: I have an INFO computer image scanner and I have no power cord for it. It's rated at 12 volts, 1 A. I have 12 volt AC power adapters but they are all rated at 300mA. What's the difference between mA and A? And will a 12 volt AC power supply at 300mA burn my scanner? I'd really appreciate your help. Jeff
The 300 mA rating means 300 milliamperes which equals 0.3 Amperes. That is too light for the 1A or 1 Ampere requirement. It won't deliver enough current to operate the scanner. You need more current than the 300 mA unit can provide.
