    Hello all.

    This is my first post so I hope I am posting in the right forum.

    Also note, I am a complete novice when it comes to electrical/electronics.

    I have an Amplifier controller, typically for a marine application, which I need to power trhough standard 110-120V 60Hz. The uint has 3 wires, as follows:

    Red +12V (line is fused 250mA)
    Black -
    White +24

    They indicate "Power Supply 12-24 V d.c."

    How can I power this? What hook up do I need to do, what power transformer will suffice?

    Someone suggested I connect the Red and Black using a 12Vdc 300mA transformer, but wanted confirmation from someone here, or other advice.

    I don't get the Power supply. Does that mean it can accept 2 different power supply 12V or 24V, or does it mean something else altogether?

    Any advice is greatly appreciate.

    I would say that a 12V 300mA DC plugpack would be fine.

    Just be sure to connect it the right way (+ to +, - to -)
