How to wire PRIZM V5.1 Accent LED to be off during deep sleep?
« on: September 01, 2020, 08:27:14 AM »
Hi everyone, I'm almost done wiring my first saber.

So far everything has seemed pretty straightforward, the LED, the switches, the battery holder, recharge port, speaker, all of it except for this bit. I'm not quite sure how to wire this control box PCB I'm using (presoldered/common cathode) to have the accent LEDs only be on during activation, or even idle. The idea is at the every least have them off during deep sleep so as not to drain the battery.

I'm using (PRIZM V5.1) and the PCB for my control box is the LS6 one from SaberStuff on Etsy. For some reason I'm not allowed to attach images but if you can't find pics yourself I can send them to you if you want to help me out :)

Thank you for any assistance! MTFBWY

on prizm, the accents will be on only during activation (following the sequence in leds.txt) then off otherwise including during deep sleep

That's great! They'd be off just by having them hooked up to the Accent LED pads? The deep sleep pad stuff isn't necessary?
