Power supply

IS the power supply shown in the attached photo large enough to power a 150x150 heated board?
The board is for the Printrbot Metal Simple.

That's going to be very marginal. The 12V output (the only one we care about) totals only 222 watts combined with both circuits active. Generally, people with heated beds have power supplies with 350 watts or more.
