using 12v 200 mA max trigger coming out of my projector. How many watts can I safely hook up to it? Answered

So I have a Panasonic Projector that has a 12v 200mA "max"  trigger on it that I would like to hook up some LED's to it. 

The LED people state that each module uses .72 watts (less than a watt) per module and I would like to hook up no more than 10 modules. 

Or does anyone else have a way to do this? 

I was also looking into a 12v sensor trigger.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Pete

I didn't exactly understand your question but if you meant to ask :"What is the maximum amount of watts I can draw from the 12V 200MA supply"

12 X .200 = 2.4Watts Max.

What skill set in electronics do you have. IE can you solder ? Read a circuit schematic ? Recognize an axial Diode from a Resistor ?

Your profile doesn't say where you are in the world, so its hard to make recommendations. In the UK, you'd walk into a Maplin store and out with a relay.

Use the 12V trigger to power a small relay, use the relay to trigger the LEDs.
