Just a confirmation that I am wiring this the correct way. Please correct me if wrong.

The yellow that goes off the bottom of the pic is a loop from + to NO1.

That doesnt look right to me, Why have you connected 0V to it?

Ground?

I am used to wiring motorcycles, not computers. On bikes, 0V is the ground (-), so that is what I was basing this on.

Its only single throw so you only split the 12V.

Figured it out:

Yellow goes to + and NO1. Black goes to -. Red goes to C1.

Led turns on when switch is depressed.

Hope this helps someone in the future.

Make a Mini Guide as i will Defo need this in the future, and you would gain some Virtual brownie points

Can you draw or show a picture of how the wiring worked out for you? More specifically, where does the power yellow wire connect and where does the yellow device wire connect. I'm used to 2-3 pole switches and the NC/NO/C is throwing me off. Thanks!

Can you draw a simple wire connection for this?

I want to use this vandal switches to power on/off some custom led's.

I have in the moment done a stripe with 2 blue led's. (5mm blue led 3.3v 20mA) connected to the 12V molex, and a 470oms resistor on the 12V wire.

Now i want to use this vandal switches to power on/off the leds.

How can i connect all this?

I know this is an old thread but I have searched numerous times for a simple diagram or drawing showing how to hookup the Vandal Latching Switch to turn on LED's or fans. I finally found a pic that shows how to do it for the simple minded people like me when it comes to electrical.

There is no resistor needed for Vandal Switches that can handle up to 12v for the led.

First link shows that diagram.
