Updated 5/6/2018

 

NO LONGER FOR SALE

 

Sega Genesis, Sega Master System (SMS), and Atari 2600 to Intellivision controller adapter. 

 

Allows the above controllers to be used on Intellivision 2 or Sears.  Also works with Intellivision 1 if you add db9 ports to it.

 

 

 

You will need to purchase "VEL05US090-US-JA" power adapter from Digikey or Newark.  This is +9V DC (center positive) power adapter for US/Canada.  Power adapter cord is 59 inches / 150cm long.  

 

VEL05US090-EU-JA  <--For Europe

VEL05US090-UK-JA  <--For UK

 

Newark: $6.50 + $5.35 Priority shipping

or

Digikey: $6.50 + $3.75 first class mail or $7.60 Priority shipping

 

Once adapter is complete you have 1 week to pay.  If after one week your order will be released to next person.

 

$5 shipping in US

$12 shipping to Canada

 

Comes in Black (Genesis), Gray (Intv2) or Almond (Sears) color.  db9 cable is ~66 inches.  

 

If you don't like adapter then it return within 2 weeks for refund.  You pay return shipping cost.  Send back in same box I mailed it in.  Send with tracking.  I can not refund the power adapter as I did not sell it to you.  You would need to speak with Newark or Digikey for that.

 

 

Tested with the following controllers.

Sega Model 1650 (3 button) - 2 buttons, and B+C for lower right button.

Sega MK-1470 (6 button with rapid) - 2 buttons, and B+C for lower right button.

Sega MK-1653 - (6 button no rapid) - 2 buttons, and B+C for lower right button.

Sega SMS controller - Model 3020 - 2 buttons, and B+C for lower right button

Atari 2600 CX40 controller - single button

 

Features:

Front DB9 port for Sega Genesis, Sega Master System, or Atari 2600 controller

Rear db9 cable that plugs into Intellivision 2 or Sears.  Also connects to Intellivision 1 if you add db9 ports to it.

9v DC power jack in rear. 

Adapter provides up to 200ma of power.

Front mount red power led

Front mount push on, push off power button (Gray color).

Custom designed sticker on bottom, made by person on AA who makes all the stickers I use

 

Sega Genesis Button Mapping:

Sega Genesis B button = Intellivision Top Left/Right Action button

Sega Genesis C button = Intellivision Bottom Left Action button

Sega Genesis B+C at the same time = Intellivision Bottom Right Action button

 

Sega Master System (SMS) Button Mapping:

SMS button 1 = Intellivision Top Left/Right Action button

SMS button 2 = Intellivision Bottom Left Action button

SMS 1 and 2 at the same time = Intellivision Bottom Right Action button

Very cool. I'd like to say I'm interested in one but I still use your Intv arcade controller design religiously, so I'm not sure if I'll truly need this or not. Of course if I have the extra money to get one, I would. :)

Could I just put a power jack on the front of the console to power it instead of using an adapter? I remember you did something similar on an Inty II when you first made your arcade controller, although that jack might have been 5vdc and this requires 9v dc. Just thinking out loud.. I can't remember what all voltages are available off hand to tap off of from inside the console.

Also on case color, when you say yellow, do you mean a cream color like the SVA is?

Almond color is very much like Sears model.

 

Its best to use the power adapter I recommend.

Ok thanks. I'd just like to think about it a little but probably will pick one up in the almond color to match the Sears system which is what I predominantly use.
Thanks.

If this was around when I had an Intellivision I'd still own it today. Where was this 6 years ago!?

Recovering from surgery.  Will most likely be fall now.  Looks like I'll end up making 5 as there is very low interest.

I've had worse luck this year.  Had second major surgery a couple of weeks ago.  I'm still looking to do this project, however it needs to be delayed to Early 2018.

 

Sorry for the delay.

Thanks for the update, grips!  Take care of yourself and get better - that's obviously the most important thing.
