wiring help Answered

im working on a fireworks show and i just bought 25 toggle switches and led's from a garage sale for 5 bucks.. never opened still in packaging. how would i wire all this up to show when its armed a light would show on each channel.. im using this thing to ignite the bigger fire works (2 per switch)... i got around 360' of extra red insulated wire laying around from the shop i work at in the summer becasue they are throwing/giving away. any advice i also got a few rca and 1/8' male and femail jacks and a few push buttons from salvaged things... could i also use the thingys from cameras that put out 330 volts i have a few of those. you can contact me on meesenger also at:deer_hunt05@hotmail.com

> could i also use the thingys from cameras that put out 330 volts . Your switches and wire are probably rated for 200-250VAC (spec molded/printed on some switches). As long as you are not trying to interrupt 330VAC, they should work. I think the thingy is a capacitor which is DC, in which case I think it would iffy.

You could wire an LED (with resistor) across the switch. Not only would this tell you that you had power to the switch, but also that you had a complete circuit to the ignitor. This assumes that a few mA will not be enough to power the ignitors. L
