Opus Discovery large maintanance kit

Available in May 2020!

This offer is for a set of brand new replacement parts for the Opus Discovery floppy disk system:
– 2x replacement bridge rectifiers – Vishay VS-2KBB20
– 2x 4700uF (huge) radial capacitors 7.5mm pitch
– 2x 1uF 16V radial capacitors 2.54mm pitch
– 2x 10uF 16V radial capacitors 2.54mm pitch
– 1x 47uF 10V axial capacitor Vishay

The Opus Discovery is an add-on made in 1985 for the ZX Spectrum –  read more about the Opus Discovery here.

The original bridge rectifiers assembled from factory in a Opus Discovery system, are of poor quality.
With many users their Opus Discovery failed after adding a second Floppy disk drive, because the current drawn through these Bridge Rectifiers exceeded their maximum.
Many of the original bridge rectifiers bulge, and / or have visible melted plastic.

So it’s good as preventive maintanance of your Opus Discovery, to replace these bridge rectifiers, and also the old original electrolytic capacitors.

The kit comes without assembly instructions, as they are straight forward enough:
Remove the old parts (using e.g. a tin sucker with your soldering iron) and install the new ones, minding orientation of the parts:
– the bridge rectifiers have one angled corner
– the capacitors have a ‘-‘ (negative polarity) side clearly shown on the casing

If they fail, of course you will have to replace them anyway.
There aren’t many suitable replacement types available, hence we sourced them and offer them here.

Remove the old bridge rectifiers (using e.g. a tin sucker with your soldering iron) and install the new ones, minding the angled corner at one side of the bridge rectifiers for orientation.

Two of these will be in this replacement kit:

PlusDlite floppydisc interface with case + Dual Floppy Drive + 10 disk set

We need about 3 working days for this product to produce.

The PlusDlite with professionally 3D printed case
+
Dual Floppy Drive set
+
10 disk set

Add the fun of using floppies on a ZX Spectrum, for a truly nostalgic experience!

The PlusDlite Floppy Disk Interface

The PlusDlite is based on the succesful MGT PlusD floppydisc interface.
The PlusD and it’s big brother – the Disciple floppydisc interface – were the best floppydisc interface available back then.
They were fast, had a really easy to use BASIC syntax, and were compatible with the most advanced floppydrives at the time: up to 80 track DS DD drives, with a maximum capacity of 800KB.
The PlusD also had snapshot functionality integrated, and came in a decent metal case.

The PlusDlite has:

  • An integrated Kempston joystick port
  • RESET button
  • NMI (snapshot) button!

Read the manual online here!
More information can be found at the dedicated PlusDlite website; click here!

The Dual Floppy Drive set

  • Manually crafted!
  • Also works on e.g. PlusD, Disciple, Betadisk, QL and other machines with Shugart Flopp Disk interface like BBC etc.
  • Including EU / UK / US power supply (the type that is needed in your country is included)

The set

The set comes with 5 Floppy discs with PlusD utilities and 5 empty formatted disks.

 

Shipped by registered and insured service.
