#1) there is no standard color coding on DE9 (you incorrectly refer to it as a DB, there is a difference) and even manufactures will get colors going to different connections from lot to lot
#2) you do not need UL approved tape and connectors for low voltage DC
#3) you do not need 100$ crimpers to perform these tasks, much like you do not need a 70$ wire stripper
#4) quit talking to us like we are fuckin morons
#5) don't post bullshit scare tactics to push your sales
5 in particular no, consumers wont be paying 25% more for a power supply magically overnight. The companies who build power supplies in the US will have to pay 25% more for components. Those made in other places wont have to pay the tariff, and there's not a tariff on finished electronic goods, which makes the entire thing fucking stupid but I wont get into that as it gets into politics
(1) There is a standard color code used for ATX power supplies and the one and only Coleco printer power cord. The color code I gave is correct when connecting to the Coleco ADAM power cord to a ATX power supply (This information was provided for those that want to install their own wire harness.
(2) Yes I am aware that UL is optional certification. However if the UL electrical tape and other UL products are not that much more expensive, I would prefer to use UL listed or approved material.
(3) I never said a $100 crimping tool and $70 wire stripper were required. Some people might solder the wires directly on the circuit board to save money, or some people might locate a lower cost basic stripper and crimping tools. It all depends on how and what is used to connect everything.
(4) The profanity you use is not acceptable on most websites. I never called anyone a moron. Some people do not know how to install their own wire harness on a ATX power supply. The information I gave is very helpful for some people that want to install their own wire harness.
(5) I am not posting any scare tactics. Some companies in the United States this week have been getting emails from some Chinese dealers letting them know that all their products including in stock items well receive a 10% price increase now. And a total 25% price increase after January 1st 2019. This is for finished goods imported from China like power supplies. This is useful information in case someone wants to buy their own power supply and install a wire harness on it. A 25% increase on power supplies next year is what people call inflation.
