Is a transformer that puts out 12VAC at 2.4 amps safe to use with a circuit that only draws 0.58amps? Answered

The circuit i attempting to drive is one from a plasma globe. I was not sure if the excess output of the transformer would "fry" components on the board

The transformer doesn't "put out" that many amps. Rather, that is the maximum that it can put out, depending on what load you've connected to it.

The transformer has to be rated 0.58A or higher, so that's fine.
