Wiring 5 4pdt toggle switches (using center & 1 outside row contacts) 1 on cuts power off to others? Answered
5 4pdt switches using only center & 1 outside row of terminals (8 connections per switch). Power (9vdc) in to 2 terminals on center row each switch. When turn any one switch on, want other 4 disconnected from power. Don't want anything programable. Relays ok or an ic. Trying to keep it basic & reasonable. Using total of 10 4pdt switches, half negative side & half positive voltage. Set-up to work on either bank of switches. More switches or 6pole not an option because of expense. I can come off 1 terminal with power to ????? I feel like I'm missing something simple. I hope somebody reading Instructables has a solution. Thanks in advance for your help.
