It looks similar to this:
Well, maybe you are having a difficulty finding it because what you have there
in the pic is a small transformer, but you need a transformer/rectifier. The transformer
steps the voltage down to the required range and the rectifier changes it from AC to DC.
I'd get the size requirements and contact an electrical supply place and
tell them you need an AC to DC power supply of approxiamtely 15V and 3 amps.
Your DC device will likely operate in a "range" of voltages within + or - 1.5V
and the current (amps) will adjust according. I'll PM you my phone # if you
need more help Fast... BTW, I am a union Electrician with 20+ years of
experience, and my apprenticeship is basically 50 to 75% of an EE degree
as far as the electrical training goes. They tell me I can transfer the credits
but I never did, most EE's make less than a Journeyman (if he stays working)
