TG3 Electronics BL82 keyboard ps/2 to USB adapter

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi guys there is a good deal going around for this keyboard and I'm ready to pull the plug but its PS/2 connection. I heard that TG3 keyboards and Deck that are made with PS/2 stock wont play nice with just any PS/2 to USB adapter. I would of like nothing more than to just mod it to be USB only by switching the cable,but I guess its not that simple,seems that it needs soldiering and adding USB PCB...

So the easiest way for me to do is find a good compatible PS2/ to USB adapter that will be compatible with the TG3 BL82, any body that have this keyboard can help regarding this manner?


Was looking into this the adapter since it has some good reviews even with peeps using old IBM's and a male to male USB cable too.Here are the links,and is someone has better idea please point me into the right dirrection:

Blue Cube should work just fine. I don't know of any TG3/Blue Cube issues.

+rep thanks, one more thing though, since I will be using the adapter will that be an issues to turn on the LED's on the keyboard,because I will have to use the FN key for that right?

Hate to do this but...BUMP!!!

I found this around searching for info regarding TG3 BL82 and full compatability with adapter,I was worrying in my post above about being able to power up the LED's and this is what I found from a chinesse website:

TG3 BL82: this is the industrial version of Deck 82, PS2 connector, BUT it requires 12v for the backlight to work, without it, it can only function as a normal keyboard. In order to get enough power, you need to get electricity from your Molex connector from you PSU, and be ready to do some DIY.

I think they may be talking about the 12V PoPo Police Car version.

Boy, you sure are getting bad answers at Geekhack.

Yeah. I doubt you need to wire up the BL82 to a Molex for the backlight to work tongue.gif

Hey thanks guys finding out little by little,they done make that many of them that are for police cars,just got of the phone with TG3 tech support and they ask me to get the rest of the number after TG3 BL82 in order to find out if its made for cops car, if its good for lighing it up trough my PC then its a steal at $58 brand new including shipping,and they have 120 more of them.I will post the link of the deal if you guys want me to later on. But first I will make sure its not the cops car keyboard.

Well thanks to all but I ended up calling the seller and TG3 going back and forth finding out the exact last codes of the keyboard in order to get full idea of what its going on,yes its a cops keyboard but it doesnt require 12V for the LED's its only 5V so its fine lighting up the keyboard without any cable to PSU modding,its cherry blacks and its brand new and they have 120 in stock. The price is $58 with shipping and you cant beat that for this type of a quality keyboard.I'm getting one for my self now, here is the link http://www.globaltekoutlet.com/TG3-Electronics-BL82-Series-Backlit-Keyboard-p/bl82.htm
