I now have two JavaStation-10's (one is a brand new unit) the only problem is that I don't have a power supply brick. (This I will definitely need to source.)
It seems that people who hung onto these units usually kept them for display purposes and didn't keep the Power Supplies as a result!
The JavaStation makes use of a proprietary connector to deliver DC to the unit.
After looking at the Sun Cobalt Cube 3, I have noticed that although the cube makes use of a standard DIN connector to deliver DC to the unit, it has the same number of pins an the DC connector used with the JavaStation.
I am wondering if I could not possibly just to buy a Cube 3 make up a plug converter for it's power supply and use it with the JavaStation until I'm able to acquire the correct power supply brick?
Does anyone here have any idea as to what the pinouts on the JavaStation's Power Supply brick are and what type of plug is used?
For now, I'm assuming that the rail voltages are +12V, -12V and +5v like those found in the Cobalt Cube 3.
Can the JavaStation not maybe be used as a serial terminal computer, as it has a serial port. I would like to maybe use one of these machines to display the boot process of my V880 via serial or network serial. (This seems like a good possible use for one of these machines, if it's indeed possible.)
Any help with this matter would be much appreciated.
