Brief Description:  Armrest switch wiring-1

Began wiring tonight. First off I crimped terminals on the diode that attaches to the master contactor to prevent voltage spikes. Pretty straight forward stuff. I had previously laid out light switches on the pilot’s armrest—also included a switch for a/p disconnect and switch for essential (emergency) items. Since I am using Vertical Powers’ VP-X Pro, I won’t need a bunch of breakers—the VP-X serves as an electronic breaker. Therefore, the switches on the armrest can use small gauge wires and toggle switches that don’t have to be rated for a high amperage. The first wires I ran were for the landing and taxi light switches. I crimped ring terminals on the switch end and used a fast-on terminal on the ground end. The positive end will get a pin that plugs into the VP-X. I printed some small tags to identify the wires and used clear heat shrink to attach to the wires. Not real impressed with this method, but maybe I can make it work.
