Any electricians on here?

Hi I need to run a 12v dc motor from my mains.
The motor spec is
Power 2W
Voltage 6-12V
Rated current 0.2A

I have found a dc transformer online rated output
DC12V
2A max

Is this safe to run this motor? Should I put a 0.2A fuse in the circuit to protect the motor?

Thanks for any help

Re: Any electricians on here?

I have little electronic knowledge, am I right in thinking this will be ok as long as the motor isn't being worked too hard it won't pull high amps?
