Persci 299 Drive with Persci 1170 controller boards
Note: Edited on June 26, 2015
Further to my previous post at Persci Drive and Controller boards? I finally took delivery of the Persci drive. It does, in fact, contain a Persci 299 dual drive mechanism. I haven’t yet checked the glass scale to see if this is usable (I assume there is one in this like my Helios II). This is a critical part that sometimes gets damaged in shipping and is “unobtanium”.
I was able to read the EPROMs on the second of the two Persci cards and embedded in the code was the string “ERSCI 1170 V F.2-5”. I’m strongly suspecting it’s proof that both cards make up a PerSci 1170 controller. I have the four 2716 EPROMS dumped in the files area at http://vintagecomputer.ca/
Below are more pictures in greater detail.
If you have any information on this Persci configuration or, specifically, the Persci 1170 S-100 controller cards, please let me know.
