Description

After a few years in the market our Saturns are growing older, and problems related to bad caps in the stock power supply, or problems with the infamous voltage regulator (prone to fail from the very beginning) are commonplace. This can affect the voltage of the CD lens and, of course,  the voltage the ICs on the motherboard need. Recapping or swapping the whole psu can obviously be a solution, but the variety of models existing makes it sometimes hard to find a match.

To solve all this REXUS NEXUS designed the ReSaturn PSU, a 12v power supply that works with all Saturn revisions (from VA0 to VA15) either NTSC-J, NTSC-US, or PAL.. You just need a 12v AC/DC adapter with positive center tip and you’re good to go!

This is compatible with all ODEs!!! ODE = optical disc emulator.
No soldering required to install this kit!

Some recommend power supplies are listed in the FAQ/Troubleshooting guides linked to at the bottom of the page.


Here are the scope plots proving this kit can handle normal and excessive 3amp loads and not output too much noise:

The Saturn had 3 different sorts of PSU:

Type A (GND,GND, 3.3v, 5v, 9v)

Type B (GND,GND, 3.3v, 5v, 9v)

Type C (GND, GND, 5v, 5v, 9v/12v) or (GND, GND, 5v, 5v).

All these combinations are possible with the ReSaturn PSU, see the installation guide.
