Yes, but what happens when you disconnect the pins? The behavior will tell us what type of switch to look for. There are different types.I tried connecting the two pins a week ago and it works fine. Is this making sense to you guys because I'm confused!!!!
No. That indicates a normal pushbutton switch. Now you need to determine the current the switch needs to handle. Place a resistor between the two wires and measure the voltage across it. That and Ohms law will give you the current. The resistor may get hot and burn up if it’s too small. Start with a 1W 1k resistor. If it’s too small, the resistor will act like a fuse.would it be a latching switch?
You could use the technique of getting a switch roughly the same size of the old one and preparing yourself for the possibility it will burn out. But, since it appears that a momentary switch is all that is needed, it’s probably only carrying a signal current. And your likely to succeed.all i know is it's 12v. I spotted the latching switch too but i wasn't too sure. Ohm's law is a bit beyond my purview. It worked when i connected it with a single strand or copper wire..... not sure if that make a difference.
A latching switch will require you to press it 2-3 times before it will shut off. You need a momentary switch.I think I'll go with the latching switch, i did a bit or reading up and it sounds like what I'm looking for. Thanks a million for your help. I wish i had half the knowledge you have with regard to these matters. djsfantasi. You rule!!
But how does it determine when to power off? The TS description indicates that it’s looking for a press of the pushbutton (i.e. a rising edge) to turn it off. A trailing edge doesn’t do it; the scooter remains on in that case. A latching switch wouldn’t produce a rising edge. The operator would have to press a latching switch at least twice.I doubt it is the switch that produces the delay, it is usually a normally open PB, and the delay is a function of what ever it is connected to, IOW, it doesn't recognize a non-delayed operation of the P.B.
The control itself exercises a delay from the continued push operation.
