Need help. Is it possible to wire 2 short led strips with 6 pin (ON-OFF-ON) SPDT switch in that way to have:

A) One led strip - ON, second - OFF;

B) Both strips - ON;

Components: 6-PIN SPDT switch, 1 power supply, 2 led strips

  • \$\begingroup\$ Are you allowed to use more components??? Add a diode, I think it can be done. Or use a DPDT switch, much easier. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Are you sure you have a spdt switch? If it has 6 pins, it may well be a dpdt switch. \$\endgroup\$ Dec 3, 2020 at 11:28
  • \$\begingroup\$ Sorry, it is dpdt. \$\endgroup\$
