    Hi Guys

    I am currently creating a small project and would appreciate any advice on connecting a switch to a MeanWell NES-350-15 DC power supply.

    These are the components:

    The switch above has:

    • 240v Live
    • 240v Neutral
    • 240v Earth/Ground
    --------------------------------------

    • 1A
    • 2A
    • 4B
    • 5B
    MEANWELL NES-350-15

    The Meanwell NES-350-15 as you would expect has:

    • +V 15v (x3)
    • -V 15v (x3)
    ----------------------

    • 240v Earth/Ground
    • 240v Neutral
    • 240v Live
    Just want to know how to safely wire this switch into the Meanwell?

    Need a schematic / connect diagram of the switch.

    So would be fair to assume I should make the connections as such:

    Apologies for the crude diagram as I only had word with which to create it.

    Yep, if the neon is on all the time reverse the in/out connections.

    Hey guys

    Any idea what size fuse would be OK to use in the IEC socket?

    They are not regular sized fuses as found in UK 3-pin mains plugs, but a smaller 20mm version.

    The DP switch didn't come supplied with any fuses, but luckily I do have a couple (250v 'F10A' and 250v 'F3.15A')

    As Rolls Royce advises as to the H.P. of their motors: Sufficient.
    Max. :)

    Input is: 4A / 230v
