Wire in the hole
Today I had a small wiring feat! I had wondered and puzzeled over the schematics by Gert van der Winden for many hours how on earth he made the Bat switch power the overhead.
Today I took an old computer power supply, hooked up a volt-meter to one of the yellow 12V output wires. Next I inserted a switch (to be Bat switch) into the green and black wire on the 20-connector molex. So way cool! When I set the switch to ON the meter showed 11,5 volts (I said it was old) and when I set the switch to OFF the meter showed 0,02 volts.
Next I need to hook up my Phidgets boards to this power supply and the Bat switch will do it's job

Next you will have to add some relays to also turn your screens off from the Bat switch as well________________________

Actually Trevor.. You won't... You can turn the PM screens off and on with an offset. So you can simulate turning them on and off.Bob Reed
