Triumph Adler Alphatronic PC models P1/P2


Alphatronic P2 Maschine,
dazu ev. hilft der Link.

mal auf der Seite etwas umsehen.

MOS Beschreibung, Treiberbeschreibungen (Floppy,Display)
und ein Boot-Kochzept ev. anwendbar.
Eine funktionierende P2 Alphatronic und schreibbare Disketten sollte
man haben.

Mit YMODEM 80 Programm von mir - erstlich entwickelt und
ein Boot- Kochrezept dort zu finden.

Viel Erfolg und Grüße

I have an Alphatronic P2 and i need technical information and software for it. Do you have this machine yet? If you have it, could you help me, please?
Obtaining information about these machines is very (impossible) in my country.
Thank you very much.

I have a twin floppy Triumph Adler in working condition that I purchased in 1980 as the IBM''s started to make them obsolete, I was still using it to a small extent in 1995 for weather satellite orbit prediction.
My first computer training was on the Siemens R10/30 series which I believe was more or less a clone of the IBM360 with washing machine size 250MB drives.
When I could get time on the Siemens machine I could write basic programs which I later transferred to the CP/M machine

P1/P2 where the base for P3/P4 - CPU speed was 3Mhz (Intel 8085 with 6Mhz xtal). It was based on a computer developed by SKS (Steinmetz and Krischke Datentechnik in Karlsruhe, Germany). TA did a redesign of most boards to bring it in production. Floppy disks where double sided, 40tracks. As I was working in the dev. dept. for this computer, I do have some few software information, mostly the MOS and the CP/M Bios

I used to sell these (in East Anglia) - both the P1 and the P2. They were really good business machines at the time.

I wonder if any of my old customers have still got them? I'll maybe ring around and see :-)

The Alphatronic P2 does use CP/M but but the Base Address is at 4000H not 100H as Standard CP/M this means that programs have to be assembled to that address. The disks are single sided, the drives can be single sided or double sided, which are treated as two separate drives. As I haven't touched my machine for many years I would have to search my records for more information. The machine is so strange that many were just dumped. They were the bane of my life, I passed on all the information to some one in Cambridgeshire many years ago.
