how to power multiple devices on one 12v dc power supply? Answered
A) So i'm upgrading my soldering fume extractor as the OLD model looks ancient.. the old model ran x5 12v dc fans with the following current rating ( 0.12A, 0.25A, 0.41A, 0.40A, 0.40A ) and 3 standard 5 mm led's. POWERED BY 12v = 500mA DC power supply
B) the NEW model will have x4 dc fans @ 0.41a x1 12v 360 degree W5W led 0.41A x6 5mm leds x1 arduino Nano.
My questions are:
1) How did i power the OLD model (A) with that power supply. from my understanding if doesn't supply enough current.
2) Can i power all the components in the NEW model(A) with a 12v 1A supply and if not how can i power all these components from 1 plug?
thanks for your help
