Floppy drive 12V amps draw ?

Post by exxos » Sun Sep 22, 2019 11:42 am

Anyone know the current draw of the old style floppy drives (long button I assume) which need the 12V ? Just trying to find how much they actually pulled on the 12V rail...

The original external floppy PSU is speced at 0.21A 12V if that's any indication.

Yeah gives me a idea. I thought it was about 250mA, but could vary on drive I guess.
