The Panelbook 550 can be powered by a normal AT Power Supply. I modified mine by removing the extra cables and installing the switch on the inside. I made the power cord out of a PS2 Extension Cable. It's only 26awg wire but it seems to work fine. I had to remove one pin and the plastic center to make it fit.

On the inside of the power supply, I soldered the power cable wires to the existing wires and covered the joints with shrink wrap tubing. A wire tie holds the cable to the case.

For mounting the switch inside the power supply I removed the monitor jack and made a switch plate out of acrylic plastic. Since the plastic is clear it's easy to mark the holes.

To make the plate:

  • Solder the switch to the wires.
  • Cut Clear Plastic to cover empty hole and screw holes.
  • Hold switch in place and mark location for large hole.
  • Drill 1/2" hole.
  • Place switch in hole and mark two small holes on switch.
  • Drill 1/8" holes.
  • Attach switch to plate with 1 screw.
  • Hold switch in place and mark last two holes.
  • Unscrew switch and drill last two holes in plate.
  • Counter sink 1/8" holes for tapered screw heads.
  • Attach Switch to plate and attach plate to Power Supply.

Check the pins with a voltage meter before using the power cable. The wire colors above should be used for reference only.  They may vary from one manufacturer to the next.

I was recently informed the Power Supply for the Panelbook 2600 works on the Panelbook 525. The power supply has this same wiring diagram on the bottom so it should work on the 550 as well.
