wiring question
« on: March 28, 2006, 04:46:06 PM »

I made this panel for my computer to turn on and off individual fans, but I have one question.



In the green circle, because both negative ends of the led and the fan are connected in series when the switch is off, will it cause any voltage problems as the motor spins down?



I just realized this might be a problem...but to late
I did test it out in the schmatic program I was using, and the light flickers a couple seconds after the switch is opened, Im thinking this is due to the voltage inbalance due to the consumption by the fan and resistor, so im wondering of this is ok?

No, the loop is 12V to 12V, so no current will flow.
