dc socket wiring
« on: July 25, 2007, 05:38:28 PM »
Today I bought a few supplies to finish off my first pedal, one being a metal DC socket instead of the platstic ones. There is a difference also in the wiring end, unlike the plastic one, the metal one has 3 lugs. The pedal is positive ground and I'm wondering if anybody could draw me a diagram showing how I should wire it. Thanks.

The plastic one has three lugs too. One is for tip, sleeve and switch.

Only problem, GGG is down at the moment.

Would you be able to describe which is which for a metal version with a different style of lug?

Is very difficult to trace the lugs with that photo, but the lug for the tip is easy is the one at the center. I think the one just in front of the tip is the sleeve and the other one is the switch lug. I almost sure that I'm correct. :icon_question:

The tip is the one at the top, and then there is one in the middle, and one at the bottom. If that helps.

Sorry, but I didn't explained myself very well (my first language is not english). I said that the tip was the one at the center, what I mean was the one connected to the center pin (the one on top). You are right. The middle one is the sleeve and the other is the switch. Check and let me know.

1=tip
2=sleeve
3=sleeve shunt (switch)

As seen from the bottom:
                                     3------> Connect to to the V+ wire of the battery
                                2----------> Connect to the +V on the board
                                     1------> Connect to ground on the board


And you are done. This all based of what we determined yesterday about your particular DC jack.

Is V+ negative from the battery?

No, is the red wire from the battery snap.
