I have been thinking about getting this lock switch to use as the on/off switch on my latest build: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0002BA3PE/ref=cm_cr_arp_mb_bdcrb_top?ie=UTF8 I don’t know if the switch can handle the current, how would I get around that?
I’ve used one similar before, it should be fine.
Use it with an antispark switch and have it be the on/off button.
Sounds good, does anybody know the dimensions of these? The Amazon one doesn’t seem to be accurate, there’s no way that thing is 3 X 3 inches
I don’t want to be a bummer, but what is his going to do?
- stop my friends from taking my board out all the time because they don’t want to build or buy one
- if someone steals it that doesn’t know what they’re doing, they won’t be able to turn it on
Ahh, ok ok. I could see this being the external with for the antispark (bedder). Now that would be hella cool.
Do you happen to have a diagram? I am struggling to figure out how I would solder it with an antispark…
Another option that will solve the key and anti spark situation is to use a xt90 anti-spark loop connector. Just mount the female socket on your enclosure so you can plug and unplug the loop connector outside the enclosure.
was thinking something like this as a battery disconnect: https://www.amazon.com/Perko-8502DP-Locking-Battery-Selector/dp/B000KOU7ZO
Those are designed for 12v and will wear out from internal spark.
For use with systems under 50 volts. capacity - 250 amps continuous, 360 amps Intermittent.
Ok, you right. They are a bit bulky though.
2.6 x 5.2 x 5.2 inches… where can you put this on a board…
Yup! But a unique option w/ key and supposed to handle volts and amps we use.
the MEB antispark has a push button, correct? If so, splice one of the wires from it and bridge it with the key switch.
This is the MEB switch, it has three wires:
There is a solid wire coning from the anti to the esc. The switchboard separate conic off of the anti, as it’s own 2 cables.
