I recently aquired an adjustable power supply and would like to know if its suitable for my project.
It is a 300W power supply with the following specifications:
- Input voltage: 13V - 62V
- Max input current: 5A
- Output voltage: 0V - 60V
- Max output current: 5A
Manual can be found here, specifications are on pages 4 and 5.
My project requires 19V with maximum load of 7.2A. From what I calculated, my project needs about 136W of power and that is well under the rating but at 19V the output current needed (at maximum load) is 7.2A and that is over the max output current rating.
Can the power supply give out the needed 7.2A even though it goes over the current limit but the wattage is still under the limit?
