NEVE VR plasma meter
« on: November 03, 2019, 06:24:51 PM »
So as I understand it the power supply for the meters is a 240v 50w unit. Is this something that could be built? There is also a controller board that interfaces it the VR console? I also understand that calibration for the meters is arduous and requires a manual. Any help would be appreciated.
If there's a harder way to do this, I haven't found it yet.

So customer bought the VR knowing the plasma meters PSU was missing as well as the 'control board' or 'controller'. I am actually building him something else (mon ctlr) but I figured I could ask around to see if there is something that could be done. We have a lead on a psu but then there is the control board issue.
Fwiw These channel are packed insanely tight.

I remember reading about him and his mods and recaps. At this point I really just want to make sure the plasma tubes are in good shape as the customer thinks that one of them might be leaking.
A very awesome and generous member here is hooking me up with some scans.
