Question about Nikon CoolScan 9000 ED Film Scanner
The equipment in question is as follows:
Nikon Coolscan 5000
Nikon Coolscan V ED
Epson Flatbed Scanner CX 5000
Dell flat screen computer monitor
DVD label printer
Samsung 10 inch TV
Sony Handy Camcorder
VHS to DVD recorder, purchased from Wal-Mart and no manufacturer available
Any help to find out the average and spiked AMPS would be very appreciated! Thanks for looking and your time.
I'll hazard a guess that you are trying to run these things off of a single household electrical circuit and want to avoid an overload. In that case, the best way is to determine how many Watts each device uses. That information can either be found on the back/bottom of the unit, or on the AC adaptor that came with it. In the latter case, use the "input power" value.
Once you know the wattage, divide by the input voltage - 120 Volts in the US, 100 Volts in Japan, or 240 Volts in Europe, Australia, and much of Asia.
For example...the info on the bottom of my boombox indicates 120V at 16W...
Watts / Volts = Amps
18W / 120V = 0.15A
In another example, my laptop power supply has the following info...
120V-240V @ 160W input
15.4V @ 145W output
I use 120 Volts here so the math goes...
160W / 120V = 1.333A
Note that the output values are not used.
If I want to know how much current the devices use together, I merely add them...
Boombox Amps + Laptop Amps = Total Amps
0.15A + 1.333A = 1.483A
I hope this helps !
