When using an external 12v power supply, what value of fuse should be used? Is it acceptable to power the Maestro with the same power supply that powers the 6700?

On page 19 of the Maestro User Guide, it describes the voltage range and wattage (power) requirements.  A little simple math will provide the answer (P=VxI)
(the answer is the max power draw is approximately 2 amps)

I run all my DC devices, including the 6700 off the same "big iron" Astron p/s using a fused power distribution block.
