This is the connection from the H704 power supply ( 76K) to the PDP-8/I logic. The card with the black heat sink is the G805 negative regulator which with the G826 regulator control generates the core memory voltage. The core voltage is normally about -22.5 volts and is varied with the core memory temperature to keep the core operating at the proper current.
Feel free to contact me, David Gesswein firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, comments on the web site, or if you have related equipment, documentation, software etc. you are willing to part with. I am interested in anything PDP-8 related, computers, peripherals used with them, DEC or third party, or documentation.
