    Hey guys,

    For my Topper lightning i need 12vdc.

    The easiest way seems Like to grab it from the CN6 Plug (Spike2 Power distribution Board).

    i would Like ask how much amps I can grab without frying the Board. I need 2Amps . Hope you can Help me.

    Thank you

    I think the max is 2a. If you need 2a, that plug won’t work, you should try to avoid pulling more than 80% off a circuit.

    Thank you

    Its about 1,7a and i'll put a 2A fuse between the ligtning and 12V Board connection. Hope that works.

    the main power supply is 48v so you are going to be pulling the 2a extra through a voltage regulator. Without doing much research, none of the voltage regulators I saw looked that beefy and 2a can be a lot to a weenie SMT voltage regulator. Get a second $15 power supply so you don't destroy a $300 circuit board.
