Wiring Diagram for LED latching on/off switch

by paulfecht on Fri Apr 13, 2018 11:56 am

Hi there, purchased the latching Blue LED on/off switch. Going to be turning on and off my 12v robot with it.
Hints, tips, tricks, wiring diagrams for doing so and not blowing the LED.....?

I'm considering putting a 1Kohm resistor in series with the LED... will that work.
A simple wiring diagram considering a 12v DC power supply would be greatly appreciated.
I'm assuming the LED uses around 3.3V and the switch is connecting 12v. Will the resistor
take care of this?

Thank you

You guys didn't reply but I found a solution. It took me burning out the LED on one of the 2 switches that I bought but now I have it working nicely. Not sure why these things confuse me sometimes. Reply or mail me if interested in the wiring diagram. I'd even be willing to have it on the product page or a schematic, it would have been helpful but it was a fun puzzle to solve but not everyone may enjoy being stumped for a couple of hours when they have other things to do.
