Need Schematics for an Alspa ACI-1 or ACI-2

Recommended Posts

This is probably a long shot, but thinking it was just a dual 8 inch floppy drive, I recently came across an Alspa ACI-2.  It's basically an old CP/M machine that needs a dumb terminal to interact with.  Unfortunately, when I got it, it had been stripped of its power supply (to say nothing of most of its screws).  I managed to get a new one, but it's not functional, and the markings on several of the components have worn off.  So I really need the schematics to repair it.  Or at the very least, some hires pictures of a similar unit with clear part numbers that I can compare to.


This seems to be an extremely uncommon machine, likely for a reason.  But it's quirky, and as such, I'd really like to fix it.  Unfortunately, because it's so uncommon, it doesn't seem likely that I will be able to source another replacement PSU.  And any modern alternative would not only need to fit inside the case along with the original PSU board (the serial ports are on it), but also provide +5v, -5v, +12v, and +24v, with enough Amps on the +5v and +24v lines to power both floppy drives along with the motherboard.  So repairing the "original" is probably my best option.  Any help would be appreciated.
