I have a mirror defogger heating element that is intended to be hardwired to a 120V circuit and attached to the back of a bathroom mirror.
The heating element says the following -Power supply: 120V/60HZ -Input: 60W -Temperature rise: 50-77F -(Resistance of heating element: 342 ohms)
I would like to use this same heating element in a mirror in the shower but I need to drop it down to a lower voltage.
I will connect this heating element to a 24VAC power adapter but I'm not sure of the correct amps i need in the 24VAC power adapter.
The current of the heating pad when connected to the 120V power supply is 0.5A.
Does this mean that I would need a 24VAC power supply that supplies a current of 0.5A?
thank you in advance
