Hi guys,

I have 2 old AT powersupplies lying around which have never been used. Now I'd like to place them in my AT cases but I am not sure how to wire them up.
If I am not mistaken there are 4 wires going from the power supply to the power button. But which cable needs to be connected with which pin of the power button?

Can anyone maybe post some pics of the wiring?

Thx!

Normally there are two pairs of wires, colored and non-colored.
I do not recall which pair connects to mains and which connects to the PSU.
But for a power switch this is quite irrelevant.
This is all what one needs to know.

I think this is what you're looking for.

For the power push button or rocker switch on AT, like above but this may explain better:
Also if there is a green wire (ground) it needs be attached to the metal case near the switch.
added: picture of a rocker switch found on some older AT cases...
