Hi I have a LS100-12 power supply that provides up to 12V and 8.5A. it can power 2 things at a time.
may i ask FIRSTLY, if it can be used to power SIMULTANEOUSLY a cooling fan: 'HYPER N520 12V, 0.31A' & a TEC 12710 (peltier module or thermoelectric cooler with sufficient heatsinks) of ratings 15.4 max voltage but operating voltage of 12V, 10A
Secondly, both peltier and cooling fan operates at 12V, just nice the same as what the LS100-12 can provide. My concern is that the current rating for the peltier module is 10A. Does it mean that the power supply MUST provide 10A for the peltier to EVEN work? or does 8.5A suffice just that the peltier will not work at its maximum?
Thirdly, the amperage of the cooling fan is 0.31A so will it be safe to connect it to the LS100-12 power supply? Will the power supply supply more than 0.31A (like 8.5A) to the cooling fan and damage it? I am clueless.
Fourthly, if i have a peltier of rating 15.4V and 7A instead of the previously mentioned 15.4V and 10A, will it work too? which peltier is more advisable to be used such that nothing will spoil upon connection to the power supply?
lastly, can BOTH appliances be used simultaneously under the same LS100-12 power supply ASSUMING the 2 appliances can function separately with the power supply?
I hope someone can address my 5 questions on a step by step basis so as to avoid confusion. I am quite weak in terms of power and voltages and amperages ... thanks a bunch!
