SuperPet ports

Post by jayskay » Fri Nov 25, 2011 4:39 pm

I have inherited a Commodore SuperPet and am no too sure about the inside of it. When I flipped it open, I noticed some alligator jumper cables/cips partially connected to what I suspect is a serial port. There are two pairs of clips; one appears connected to pins 7? (red) and 8? (black) while the other connects pin 9? (red) to some other pin. The port identity reads

ITT DBP-255CA 8046 and it appears to look like the following.....

O___O O__________________________O (open)
13 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1
I I I I I I I I I I I I I
I I I I I I I I I I I I
25 24 23 22 21 20 19 18 17 16 15 14

Is there anybody out there who knows how to connect this port properly ?

The SuperPET does have an internal RS-232 port with DB-25 connector. It was designed to connect the SuperPET to a mainframe or modem. It's possible the previous owner had some type of add-on installed or was doing some diagnostics. It is safe to remove those wires.... they are not required for normal operation.

Thanks Steve. Will remove the clips then and not be too concerned about doing so. Appreciate the time taken to help me out with this.
