QL Mainboard Power Connector

Postby tofro » Fri Feb 09, 2018 5:00 pm

Hi!

just realized on one of my boards the main power inlet is broken where it's soldered in the PCB.

Does someone have an idea whether these can be obtained from somewhere (I have my doubts on that...) or does anyone have a spare scavenged from a broken PCB?

Thanks
Tobias

A friend discovered an alernative. Some PC cooler PSU splitter cable has a 3-pin terminal compatible to the QL PSU port. ;)

Could the power socket and plug be 3D printed?

We have had 3D model of the plug, done Mar 2017.
As far as I remember, the demand was almost zero. Project cancelled.
Price was (including screw and 4 contact pins - one as a spare) approx. EUR 2.75, plus postage.

I can try to ask the author, if he still has the model and if he is still able to print the plugs.

Hi Dex,

Can the STL file be released.

Otherwise I may produce one myself.
