3PDT with dual color ring LED
« on: August 19, 2017, 08:12:01 AM »
Hi,

   I recently found a couple of 3PDT with a dual color wiring ring led. I bought them to use them in my next two projects in case they would fit a baby board.
When I bought them I thought: "How hard can it be to wire a led?" but the truth is that I have never wired a dual led that is not on-board.

Have followed the standard 3PDT wiring and boxed everything to see if it would fit:



Everything fits great but I'm having a bit of trouble wiring the led ring. The 3PDT has three terminals to solder it but I'm a little bit lost about how to do it.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Already working

Just followed the diagram I found here: https://guitarpedalparts.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/3PDT-LED-Wiring.pdf

Of course, after seeing the diagram everything seemed obvious




It certainly looks great, although it's a little bit of a hassle to fit.
Don't know if I would use it again for a baby build, but at least got me thinking about the 3PDT wiring
