    Now that Irma is gone and back home and on a regular work schedule I hope to finish up load testing this week. Still working with UKE on sourcing the correct switches as the ones I've gotten so far don't fit but I have more on the way from several different vendors.

    Good to hear.
    I ordered switches a while back,not sure if they are going to work or not. I can send you one too see if you want. Should just cost me postge.

    So,
    Here's the trick with the switches...
    SPDT (single pole, double throw), 3 Pins (no mounting 'tabs'), and most importantly: The pin spacing needs to be: 2.54mm which is 0.1 inches.
    Not 3mm, not 2mm. Those sound real close, but they won't work. This is the same spacing as your typical pin header that you see on almost every circuit board.
    Therefore, its real easy to test any switch you may have on another PCB before you get your hands on the real deal.

    Up to you if you want to send it, I can do a fit test and send it back with your order when they are ready. I'll PM you the address.

    Sounds perfect. However, you need to test it. Chris ordered a set of switches and the pin pitch was advertised at 2.54mm but in reality it was 3mm.

    I'm sending Chris one so he can verify compatability.

    Hey Folks,

    in case you didn't notice, Chris lives in Florida and there have been some delays in testing the board.
    I expect things to pick back up very soon.

  11. Thanks DrNeutron thanked for this post
