Axidraw power

edited October 2016 in AxiDraw
What's the safe range for power adaptors on the axi draw? 
My axidraw power transformer does not seam to work. I'm in Portugal so I have to plug an adaptor but when I do it the motors don't move. I've been using a transformer that I had lying around but it's only 0.5A so prints come out with some glitches when all motors move at the same time.
would a 9v 2A be ok?


  • Yes, 9 V 2 A would be great. You might be able to get away with 9 V 1 A, but anything more than 1.5 A will be good. The important thing is that it is regulated 9 V DC. The barrel plug is 2.1 x 5.5 mm center positive.
