LED rocker switch wiring

8093 14
I have a rocker switch with a built in LED im going to use for my cathodes. My problem is, i dont know how to wire it as it didnt come with a diagram. It has two silver post and one "brass" looking post. I figured out with my multi meter the two silvers are my hot leads, whats the other for?

Those switches have make/break the positive supply and have a ground for illuminating the internal light, Typically the brass is ground, the next leg is Vout, and the last leg is Vin; Note: if the voltage supply is connected to the Vout then the light will always be lit.

a terminal block, depending on how you feed it is just going to send 12v + and a - return, just think of it as a voltage base station

if you want to see how I wired my 12v terminal blocks for The Intelligence go the link below and look at those pics (day 56 - finishing 03)

basically I fed it 12v from a molex, and made some hops for a second circuit, then took four 3-pin fan connectors and braided the + and - into two groups (parallel) and fed the fans from the TB, eliminating all of the molex splitters and pass-thru's crap from the case
