Anyone know the pinout for the Sun Cobalt Qube2 PSU ?

I got one cheap without a power supply, I have some of the correct connectors mind but need to wire them to a suitable power brick.

If someone has a Qube2 and a volt meter, could you do me a favour and tell me which pin is 12v and which is GND ?

Use this PDF of the KPPX-3P to work out pin numbers:

Thanks in advance!

Replying to myself because I found the info and thought someone else in the world might need it at some time :-)

Go here for pinout and more info :

If the link should die, then if you look at the power connector on the back of the Qube2:

Top right pin hole = Not connected
Left middle biggish hole = +12V
Bottom right biggish hole = Ground

Regards!

In case anyone is interested .. my Qube2 now runs great .. got a 12V 5Amp PSU from a local shop and with the aid of just two paper clips (well one broken in half actually) I have it powering the Qube :-)

I'll get proper connectors soon :-)

Great, just got the same box. What is original amperage for PSU?

3.0 A, see the attached photograph of the label on my working PSU of my second Qube 2.

Alternatively you can also power the Qube 2 via the internal connector that usually powers the hard disk (see this post for more details).

You're welcome. It looks like the plug in Titox' post.

Doh! The only place is where to get such connector is in UK, with shipping to USA it's about $12 - a half price of the whole box! Cheaper to make one more hole on the back and put any 12V plug...
