Power Supply

Rumor has it that a Mean Well Model 65A (+5v, +12v, -5v) and a Mean Well Model 65B (+5v, +12v, -12v) can be used to supply the +5v and +12v needed for a Model III motherboard, video, and ONE disk drive.

(Thanks to Jay Newirth for figuring this out!)


If you are willing to not have a TRS-80 keyboard and would accept something more modern, the folks over at Plaidvest Software have noted that you can install a Wireless USB Jelly Comb KS037 into a Model III (once you take out the existing keyboard) with a NEWKEY/80. They also have a Thingverse to manufacture a keyboard support if you glue a washer to the underside of the keyboard.


If you need a replacement badges for your Model III, NewSoft sells them for a very reasonable price.
