Sure, but the thing is, the PS seems to be fine when
there's no logic
plugged in. It puts out -15VDC right on the money. When I connect all
the mate-n'-locs to the logic cage, the voltage dies down severely.
Doesn't that indicate a 'logic' problem? Or at least a short somewhere on
the logic boards?
These are old switching supplies with outputs that vary by load.
Look on the -15VDC regulator. It'll be on the shelf behind the huge/heavy
H742 (hmm it may be an H744, I can't remember...) supply: there'll be a
little potentiometer on the unit that will allow you to adjust the voltage
levels. Set it to put out -15VDC with all connections in place. You'll then
see that with the unit running standalone, that it'll show a bit higher
than 15 V.
By the way, can you quantify "severely"?
