PCB - Daughterboard for Wiring 3PDT Footswitches
Our 3PDT PCB daughterboard (P-PC-3PDT-BOARD) is a small board designed to simplify the wiring of 3PDT footswitches in guitar pedals. All inputs and outputs are clearly labeled on the PCB, removing any confusion about how the footswitch should be wired, and decreasing the chances of wiring mistakes or short-circuits. There are dedicated pads for all offboard connections so that no pads or lugs require more than one connection. A dedicated location for an on-board current-limiting resistor allows for clean LED wiring with no floating resistor, whether you are mounting the LED on the board or using a bezel. Despite all this, our 3PDT board is one of the smallest boards available and can easily fit inside tight builds, including builds that use a 1590A enclosure. All pads on the board are oriented near their respective off-board components, which helps produce clean wiring and may even reduce the necessary space required for the footswitch wiring.
This 3PDT board has been tested and is known to work with:
The board will work with many of the common 3PDT footswitches that are sold, though we cannot guarantee a fit for any besides the above. It does not work with low profile 3PDT footswitches due to different pin spacing.
