Question about 8-bit power supplies

Recommended Posts

So, I have 5 power supplies for Atari 8-bit computers. Four of them are part number CO17945 and one is part number CO14319. They all have the same input jacks. I have 4 items that use power supplies, an Atari 800XL, 2 1010 casette drives, and a 1050 disk drive. My question is which things exactly do these go to? I'm pretty sure the CO17945 is for the 1050 drive, but I'm a bit squiffy about just trying these out willy nilly, since the power specs are different. Thanks in advance!

I knew I saw a list someplace :

400,800,822,850,1010,1200XL,810,1020,1050,XF551

 

yeah looks like you have it right the 1050 needing a higher Amp rating

I would reserve the 15VA power supply(CO14319) for an 850/1010, they may supply enough current for a stock 400/800/1200XL but could be questionable depending on any upgrades installed. I had the fuse in one blow when used with an upgraded 400(Mosaic 64K), I broke it open along the seam to replace the fuse.

As far as I know, Bill, my 800XL is completely stock. I also have an 800, but it's stock as well. So, the 14319 would be the power supply for the 800XL system itself, and the others would be for the disk drives and casette recorders.

No, the 14913 is 9V AC power supply.

800XL requires 5V DC, it even has different power connector, a 5 pin DIN.

The XL/XE computers(except for the 1200XL) have a 7-pin DIN +5VDC power connector, a 5-pin DIN connector is used for monitor output(except for the XEGS which has an RCA jack for composite out).
