Lamptron 16MM Resistant Vandal Switch wiring - help needed

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I'm looking for some idiot-friendly, rudimentary instructions on how to wire this switch. I'm completely ignorant in this, so keep that in mind. Actually, I'm not even sure if i have the right wiring for the switch. Help? Here are pictures of the switch, the wiring and the "instructions" :

It would be more helpful if I knew what you're wiring it to.

And is that a latching type switch (push on, push off) or momentary?

Oh, right. I'm wiring it to work as a power button for my system, the end of the wire has the typical power button connections. It is a latching switch.

You don't want to use a latching type switch as a power button. You want a momentary switch. Keep the latching one for switching your lighting or something and get a momentary. If you keep the latching type, it'll cause your mobo to power off again (like holding the power button for several seconds).

Wiring is dead simple. The two wires coming from the mobo header for PWR SW go on the C (or COM) and NO (normally open) terminals. To power the LED when the system is on, run 12v from molex or any other 12v source to the + and - terminals (respective of polarity or the LED won't light).
