|I've confused myself. wiring a LED isn't bad but trying to change colors with a selector switch is throwing me off.
First I guess I need to say project goals. 9 RGB leds, on/off switch, and rotary switch to switch all LEDs colors at once.
I only need 4 or 5 options for color. IE White, RED, BlUE, GREEN.
I believe I"d need a 3 pole rotary switch but can't find one to meet my needs. Hard and a switch to turn the whole thing off (easy part)
any suggestions on a rotary switch to use, or any kind of switch, even a set of dip switches?
I've been trying to draw a diagram so I can go shopping but it's hard to draw something for me without the parts. Any help would be great
