Cables for RGB LED Button

Use the following wires and cables for the RGB LED Button.

  • 4-Wire Silicone Cable - 20cm
  • 4-Pin picoBlade Cable - 5cm
  • 2-Wire Silicone Cable - 20cm
  • 2-Pin picoBalde Cable - 5cm
The wires are long in order to cover the length of the hilt.

Solder 4-Wire PicoBlade Cable

The 4-wire silicone cable is soldered to the 4-pin picoBlade cable. The 4-pin picoBlade cable is shortened to 5cm in length. 

Use pieces of heat shrink tubing to insulate the exposed wire.

Solder 2-Wire PicoBlade Cable

The 2-wire silicone cable is soldered to the 2-pin picoBlade cable. The 2-pin picoBlade cable is shortened to 3cm in length. 

Use pieces of heat shrink tubing to insulate the exposed wire.

Button Cables

Double check each wire to ensure they're properly soldered and any exposed wire is insulated with heat shrink tubing.

RGB LED Button Pinouts

Reference the chart for the pin labels. Read the label markings on the RGB LED button to determine which pins to use.

Solder 2-Wire Cable to Button

Tin the terminals on the button before soldering wires. This helps make soldering the wires to the terminals easier.

Solder the 2-wire cable to the following pins

  • C (common)
  • NC (normally closed)

Solder 4-Wire Cable to Button

Attach the 4-wire cable to the following terminals on the button.

  • Black Wire – Common LED (pin c)
  • Red Wire – Red LED (pin a)
  • White Wire – Green LED (pin b)
  • Yellow Wire – Blue LED (pin d)

Wired Button

Double check the wires are properly soldered to the RGB LED button.

Test RGB LED Button

The RGB LED button can be tested by connecting the 4-wire cable to the 4-wire cable on the PropMaker. Plug in the battery to the Feather to power on the Circuit. The code, libraries and sounds should be uploaded to the Feather board.
