Lights out.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey Overclockers,
Sorry if this has already been posted somewhere before.
I would like to know how i can control LED's in my future build.

It will be in a 900d with a custom loop.

In my loop i will be using Monsoons compression fitting with light tunnel.

And there LED'S

They use molex connectors for power.
But what about when i need to turn them off, i would have to pull out each connection.
Which would be annoying having to open the case just for that.
So i wondering if there is a type of molex power-splitter which could power all of them, and has a switch to turn it off.

Or anything that would work to turn off the lights.
when i needed.

Thanks,
advice needed.

That's an easy one to solve. Add an inline switch anywhere along the wiring you want it. Get any type of switch you'd like, rocker, push button, whatever, as long as it's a latching type (choices are latching or momentary). Cut one of the two wires that forms your lighting circuit (+ or -, doesn't really matter) and install the switch across the gap. You can attach the wire by stripping a short length of it and adding crimp terminals, soldering to the tabs on the switch, or simply running the wire through a hole on the tab, double it back on itself and twist it tight, then apply heatshrink or liquid electrical tape.

Thank you that will come in handy.
