Dauphin Orasis Tablet

Postby Sev80 » 2017-10-14 @ 19:04

So not too long ago I bought a Dauphin Orasis tablet, after about 3 years of searching. The trouble is that it does not come with a power supply and while I have determined the barrel connector is center positive, I have no idea what the voltage requirements might be for this thing. I did try the power brick from my Dauphin DTR-1, which is 12v 2.1W, it does power on but does not post. Nothing comes up on the screen. I have a feeling the power requirements are probably higher for this thing, but no idea what they are.

Anyone have one of these machines? Or have any discernible way to determine what power it might need?

Also, there is no label on the unit that says what the power requirements are.

You could try and open it up and see if you can find a voltage regulator in there, then we'll be able to look up the datasheet for it and see what the voltage max/min is.

Apparently the output voltage is 14.6V - 15V. Can't believe I actually found the specs for this thing, although the images aren't archived. Found the old website through an old InfoWorld review regarding the Orasis (which, ironically, was found through a slideshow of unsuccessful tablet PCs :lol: ) and went on a hunch.

Links (Dauphin's site was in frames...):

Computer in my collection that had too much work done is... Compaq Armada 1573DM!
