3 of a pictorial record of the restoration of a Sync II in June 2005
10. The original Sync II power panel.
Note the old style 110V input and
the round, lit power switch.
Replace panel with later version mains input and distribution panel. Note
the use of an IEC connector on this version. The mains switch will be in a panel
of its own with the infamous Synclavier logo in big white unmistakable letters.
Sometimes it just feels right to show off the name.
A new genuine Synclavier
power switch complete with original loom (unshielded connectors, we will have
to cover the exposed mains later) Switch fitted to the panel before and after.
14. The power panel IEC connector as fitted standard has given problems in the
past by overheating and corroding, causing further overheating and finally in
extreme cases, meltdown
15 Fit a high current, high temperature input connector. Note the extra
guide lug at the top which prevents the usage of a normal rated IEC mains lead.
Only high current leads may be used with this connector.
16 The high current input connector now fitted and wired. A Solid State
Relay (not present in the standard Sync II) is now fitted to take the strain away
from the main switch, and the output is fed to the distribution blocks that are
standard Synclavier items.
next stage is to fit power supplies to the system for initial testing and diagnostics.
will update the pictures daily until the upgrade is complete.
