YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All the parts I ordered arrived today. So now the project can really begin.
Royal Blue 3watt led
And the rest of the parts
(ignore the date stamp, I've been to lazy to reset my camera with the correct time..)
I've decided to use an old computer power supply housing as my control box for the driver, dimmer switch, and the on/off switch.
And here is where I'm running into a problem. I have no clue what kind of rocker switch I need to buy for this project. I went to radio shack and they had a bunch of different ones to choose from. All rated differently 6A -125V or 10A - 125V or 6A - 250V and on and on and well you get the point there's a lot.
So can anyone enlighten me as to what I should buy ? I really don't want to plug and unplug the LED's every time I want them to turn on/off.
I'd like the wiring to go as follows (someone please jump in if I have this wrong, it's been many years since high school electronics class). Power cord to on/off switch to driver to LED's.
Or should it go power cord to driver to on/off switch to LED's ??
And also when attaching the power cord, if to the driver directly( I know the rocker switches have a place for the ground to be attached to already), where should the green ground wire be attached to ? The TRC driver only has a Live and a Neutral(the power going into the driver goes to the black and white wires in the above picture, The black/red wires are to supply power to the LED's, the other wires go to the dimmer switch) wire coming out of the driver. Any info would greatly be appreciated.
