UK Power Supplies

Recommended Posts

Hoping someone can advise.

 

Got a 1200XL and Indus GT from America, and realise that you can't just plug these in and go....

not unless I want my 8-bit shenanigans to be all smoke-based.

 

My understanding is that for the Indus GT a 5200 PSU should work - these are 9V.

But other reports suggest 12v DC +.

If the 9v 5200 PSU is suitable, what about a std 1050 PSU?

 

So question is: to make both a 1200XL and an Indus GT work in the UK, which PSUs/adapters are the best to buy, and from where?

 

 

thanks

Do not use a 1050 power with Indus GT. The Indus/5200 is DC out, 1050/810/400/800 is AC out. B&C Computervisions and Best Electronics have them. The TRAK disk drives power are also DC out.

TRAK is 9v AC for sure. It's also easy to solder in a bridge rectifier into an Indus to make it work with either a DC or AC power supply.. I'll take a photo of mine and post it..
