I'm glad to announce an Amstrad PC enthusiast in England is currently
testing the ReActiveMicro Universal PSU as a possible replacement option
for this rare-ish PC clone.
It seems the Amstrad PC1512 and PC1640 systems were sold by Alan Michael
Sugar Trading in the UK back in 1987, sold in Germany under the name
Schneider, and were also sold in the U.S. under some other names as well.
All these Amstrad machines used the display monitor to provide power to the
PC body. +12, -12, +5, -5, volts DC - which is the SAME outputs as used by
the Apple II systems and what the Universal PSU was designed to replace.
Being a modern solution the Universal PSU accepts universal AC supply
voltage (100-240v AC / 50-60Hz) unlike older power supplies.
There are many Amstrad's out there not being used because the power supply
has died. With some luck the ReActiveMicro Universal PSU will help breath
some life back in to these old systems.
Amstrad PC owners can get their own Universal PSU here or can email me off
