  • Some aid in wiring up an illuiminated DPDT switch

    I'm doing a bit of electronics at the moment, and I've got a DPDT on-off-on switch with an inbuilt LED in the toggle. On the underside, it's got nine terminals:

    1 2 3
    4 5 6
    7 8 9

    The two second columns are small loops 2-8, 3-9; these are the standard six DPDT terminals. I have successfully wired these up to be a polarity inverter for my battery power supply.

    The other three terminals (1, 4 ,7) are little rods rather than loops, and they appear to be related to getting the LED to work. On the side, there is a label saying:

    O L O
    N E N
    D
    | | |
    V V V

    (The lines and Vs are vertical arrows)

    How do I wire these three so that the LED turns on when the switch is put into either of it's ON positions?
