Interface Boxes

The following lists are incomplete – it seems that Deltronics made multiple products with the same headline name and is not always apparent what interface they use (user port / serial / USB).

If you have manuals for any of these devices, please get in touch (if I’m not already hosting or linking to a copy). Especially any protocol / specification or design documentation.

Note

I have seen two faults on devices I’ve purchased – in one case a banana jack had worked loose and someone had twisted it, breaking the connection on the back. This required simple resoldering. The second issue was where the toroidal power supply worked loose while in transport. This required the 8mm nut on the top of the transformer tightening (not too tight!).
