Further on this device, the specs say:

Power supply :
   Power consumption:
   +5.0VDC and up to 9.0V DC
   Typical (tracking): 120mW

They say 120mW which would be only  24mA!    Can this be possbile.   I 
noticed in the feature grid comparing all  three of Deluo's offerings 
that the other two were 120-160 mA. I wonder if this spec is a type and 
that they really mean 120mA,  not 120mW......
