Toggle Switch Wires

Get the cables, wires and connectors ready for the toggle switches. Use the following wire lengths for the 2x 2-pin JST cable and 4-wire ribbon cable.

Wires Lengths

  • 4-wire ribbon cable – 98mm
  • 2-wire JST cables – 66mm

Tin Toggle Switch Wires

Use wire strippers to remove a bit of insulation from the tips of each wire. Tin the strands of wire by adding a bit of solder.

2-pin JST Connectors

Tin the pins on both of the 2-pin JST connectors by adding a bit of solder.

Solder 2-pin JST wires

Wire up two of the four wires from the ribbon cable to one of the 2-pin JST male connectors. Be sure to add pieces of heat shrink tubing before soldering.

Wired 2-pin JST

Repeat this process for the second 2-pin JST male connector.

Solder Toggle Switch Pins

Attach the ribbon wires to the middle and side pins of the toggle switch. Be sure to add pieces of heat shrink tubing before soldering.

Wired Toggle Switches

Repeat this process for the second toggle switch.

Tin 2-pin JST cables

Use wire strippers to remove insulation from the tips of the wires. Tin the strands of wire by adding a bit of solder.

Wired Toggle Switch Cables

Repeat this process for the second 2-pin JST cable. Double check the wiring for solid solder joints.
