I need an ASTEC power supply model SA147-3506 for IBM P-2 computer, Can anybody help me??!!
145 Watt power supply with the old style AT motherboard power cable connectors. (2 Each)
I just put Astec SA147-3506 in my browser search bar, and came up with a number of search hits. Prices ranged from $50 to $170!
And it's a 145 Watt power supply! Astec is a cheap quality power supply manufacturer, to boot!
You know, there is a way to use a newer reliable power supply, and the AT power supply motherboard connectors, off of the power supply you have.
It's not for the squeamish, but can be done.
The power wires are removed from the ATX power supply motherboard cable connector, of the new power supply, and inserted into the AT power supply connectors.
(ATX 12V power supply is the newer one. AT power wires removed from the P8, and P9 connectors of your old power supply)
