Re: 4032E Build: ITT Bicc crimps

Hi Anthony
I don't know about anyone else but I can't see any of your pictures again as the image is just a blank box with an image of a broken file or picture in it. Try using a different method to upload the pictures (from a different device?).

As regards the ITT Bicc Trident connectors that SSL used for their consoles, here is a link to the website so you can see the technical details.

http://www.farnell.com/datasheets/1694739.pdf

I have had a quick look through the PDF and the relevant connectors that SSL used are on the following pages:
 
1   Rectangular: Pages 9-13
2   Round: Pages 26-33 and 35
3   Crimps: 64 (the crimp type and NOT the stamped type which you may wish to use as a solder type version ... but I would NOT recommend this as it creates a rigid joint and could break).
4   Tools: 74

Farnell/Newark and RS Components supply most of these, if these companies make sense for those of you outside of the UK.

I will try to explain the various connectors and crimps in detail as a separate topic elsewhere on this forum when I have time and hope this helps for now.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the info. All the ITT connectors arrived and I have completed the cables and PSU, and fired up the computer for the first time.

A few bugs to sort out first - needed to install isolating standoffs on the Keyboard/VDU card due to shorting (common problem).
I'm still working on obtaining an 8" program disk from someone to be able to boot it, but so far it appears to be following the correct startup process, and sits on the "garbage" screen.

Andy H has a few good videos on youtube showing the boot up sequencing.

Jim - I've checked the picture links from other computers whilst not logged on to either the forum, or facebook, and they all work. Would be good if another forum member can confirm they are all working as they should.

Hi Anthony
I still can't see any of your pictures and I use a Mac. I saw some from before but even they are broken now although I can see the pictures from other people but just not yours! Frustrating and maybe it's a 'me and machines thing'.
Any suggestions from others would be handy to know. May be I will access this site from a different computer and see what happens.

Thanks Jim
I'll need to look for another host site for the pictures, as the early ones are now having "link expired" errors from facebook and are disappearing.
Anything but photobucket, which is a PITA!

Anthony.

Hi Anthony again

Putting your pictures on Photobucket may explain why they go missing. I thought you just attached them on here which is what most people do I think. Try that and see if it works although a hacker got into this site a few years ago and all the pictures were broken. After that Matt took steps to safeguard the site I believe so it should be alright now!

As a result, I need to spend some time trying to find the same pictures from my iPhoto file and put them back on my posts on here but it will take some time.

Hope that works for you Jim!

Hi Anthony
I thought I had replied to this but obviously not.

Yes, I have had a look through some of your posts and can now see all the pictures, some of which existed before and then didn't until now.

I will have another look at them and comment when I have time. Well done sorting them out so we can view them again.
