Center Off Switch?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've never wired one of these before. I just got one from Radioshack for my 2nd PSU. Can some one draw me a diagram of how I should wire a center off switch?

Its just a switch to turn the PSU not hooked to a mobo on right?, all you need is the Green wire going to the 20 or 24 pin connector and any black wire (ground). I do this with a small piece of wire to test PSU's, any type of switch would work, hope you didn't spend lots of $ on the thing.

Yeah, I have it runing right now. I have the ground and black wire connected with a paperclip. I need to know if I wire the ground to the off(center), and the black to the on (left and right) and vise versa.
Oh, and I forgot to say that this switch is SPDT.

No one? This seems like a pretty simple question to me...

Well I have a diagram explaining what each connector is on a normal PSU, I don't know what the switch needs, but this might help if you have any instructions with the switch.

I'm not exactly sure what the switch needs, I did a little searching and couldn't find much.

It seems that the best way to have a power supply is to just connect the green to a ground and when you want to turn it off use the switch on the back of the power supply, I did some research and it said simply putting a switch in can do damage and it would be better by unplugging/turning the power supply on/off while the green wire is connected to a ground.

Weellll... I wired the switch to ground an a black wire, and it works fine. I hope it dosn't blow up (I hope I didn't jinx it). But the switch looks awesome sticking out of my case front panel.
