Measure of AMP s expressed as 1000 times Amps. For example .5Amps would be 500mA (.5 x 1000).
A unit of measurement of electric current equal to 1/1000th of an ampere. The milliampere is the most common unit used when measuring quiescent current drain.
Is a measure of electrical current power consumption. 1 amp (A) = 1000 milliamps (mA).
a measurement of the flow of electricity
There are 1000 milliamps in 1 Amp. Every technology attached to a security system draws current, and this is measured in milliamps, for example: a control panel generally has a 1 Amp power supply built into it, from that we need to deduct the power need for every PIR, Shock sensor, Bell box etc. If we took a basic system in normal mode it would be drawing approx. 550 milli-amps, but in alarm condition this I could jump up to about 900 milli-amps.
Small units measuring the flow of electricity. One thousand milliamps equals 1 amp.
Thousandths of an amp.
Refers to battery capacity. A 1/1000th of an amp, e.g.: 1.0Ah = 1000mAh.
