The SW pad connects to ground when pedal is on, to control led. You can make little vero board to hold your led and CLR, with power coming from +V and ground going to the SW pad.I don't see a pad for an LED on these... is there a way to hook one up without having to take up one side of the relay?
So I bought several of the latching version of these to try out, and I just finished using one to convert a Boss pedal to true bypass. Some observations:What happens if power is removed while the pedal is engaged? Will the latching version switch back to bypass to allow signal through?
Hi, I'm Sorry i'm a totally dumb, could work TakaMisawa A5w-K instead the TQ2-L-5V?
Thanks for your help!
Thank you so muchHey PierBit,
NO. A5w-K will NOT work as the circuit and TQ2-L-5V are set up for a "Latching" type of circuit. These relays circuits are either Latching or Non-Latching and again, this is for "Latching" type. Buggs and PedalPCB have another board for non-latching thou. The difference is once triggered, the Latching-type uses very little current, but can cost more. The non-latching is less espensive, but higher current draw!
Takamisawa DOES have "Latching" type relays. but you would need an "AL" in the model not "A", as the "A5w-K" is non-latching type if you look at the datasheet!
I'm still waiting on the Schematic!! :O It's been months and an easy circuit. Not sure what is taking so long, maybe too many other projects, but would suggest FIFO flow, so not working on future ones unless current are closed out. A schematic and documentation release would be greatly appreciated.
p.s. - The board and design works excellent, so much appreciated!
As long as Latching-type and similar pinouts and voltage, you should be able to use in any of the same type of relay.
