BCM50 expansion power supply

BCM50 expansion power supply


I have an digital trunk expansion unit that I want to connect to my system. Unfortunately it didn't come with a power supply. I have read that a laptop power supply will work if it has has the following specification:

INPUT: AC100-240V 2A 50-60 Hz
OUTPUT: DC 19V/6.32A

I have found a power supply that fits with the following power ratings.

INPUT: 1000-240V, 47-63Hz; 1.5A
OUTPUT: 20V; 2.5A

I did plug it in for a minute to see if the lights went on on the expansion unit turned on, which they did.

So I am wondering if I can use the power supply for the expansion unit without causing any issues.

Any help would be appreciated.

I personally do not recommend to use a part that was not meant for X so if you want to go cheap and not buy the proper part then your own your own.....specially when you specs above do not match.

Thanks, I ordered the power supply listed above. 13 dollars delivered is not so bad.
