You can use one of lexels switch boards from oshpark as a replacement.

Is there another option to connect the switch?

Awesome. Thank you very much. I know there should be a pin from MCU.
Now I need to figure out were number 2 is.
Thank you and Merry Xmas

Number one marked with a dot on the atmel. Pin 2 is in the same leg line next to it.

Thanks for the save Smile I been in a rush to get this together before family shows up. Doesn’t pay to hurry, I know.

I guess pin 2 is what Lexel uses on that driver? It can certainly vary. It might be best to trace the circuit back to verify it’s pin 2. (I’ve seen drivers where pin 7 is used)

Alternatively, you can scrape the solder mask off the trace by the pad and attach the wire there. The current is super low for the switch.

What BLF based/designed drivers use pin #7? Every BLF based driver using the Atiny13/85 I have used, uses #2 Lexels/RMM’s.

The Haikelite MT09R and MT03 drivers that Texas_Ace built uses pin 7. He said he had to flip the MCU around so it fit the design better.

My point was that the pins are assignable, so it’s always good to verify.

Dont understand TA MT03 is different from his basic 46mm SRK he used to use 2 1206 0Ohm, On my designs I traced it without 0Ohm or changing any parts location or orientation

I flipped many drivers MCU from TA designs and never ran into pin assignment problems

I would always stick to the standard firmware pinouts which is compatible between them thanks to some forum members

Some drivers need to run a trace below a resistor

Switch will be aleays pin2
2S pin7 for voltage divider
2 channel pin 5,6
Indicator LED 3

3 channel 5,6,3
Indicator 7

Most everybody knows they are assignable, not BLF based drivers Lexel/RMM (#2 is kind of a standard) that I know of ever used #7, and this IS Lexel’s driver thread, any way good to know it was done on the Hacklites MT09R MT03 for what ever reason?

You know what, there might have been some confusion about the chip orientation. I think it was Pin 2 after all and not 7.

I have got this driver working. I also lost the indicator light pad. Both mishaps where my fault and had nothing to do with the with the driver. I had the driver in a small vise when I was soldering the switch wires on, when I took the driver out of the vise the head of the light caught the vise, my solder joints held and the pad didn’t.

Thanks everyone that contributed to my success.

It would be interesting to install a driver waiting for Eagle Eyes X6R with the Narsil v.1.2 firmware and an E-switch
Is it possible ?

According to the hwdefs, TK’s 4-channel lightsaber driver has the switch on pin 7 Smile

as far as I have seen the X6R uses switch on the main board and another piggy back board for charging and AMCs
It may be possible to add one of my drivery, you may sacrifise the charging board, like here and here

if the driver cavity is deep enough yopu may use charging board as well

Some lights make good hosts, some don’t. Due to the switch, the X6R does not look like a good host light.

Shipping conditions in Germany changed

usually you could ship whatever you wants just needed to look to size and weight specs
for sending items you could simply make another stamp and declaration and envelope had not to be glued and it was even cheaper on size and weight compared to normal envelope

now they simply changed normal envelopes to papers only, so they can charge more on non business customers for a parcel instead raising the price from 3.2€ to 18€
and for sending items you need to make a business account with 200 national shipment per year minimum quantity
this would not apply to me

If they check with x-ray or so the stuff I sent last days may be returned

I doubt I will ever get back to 4€ tracked and 25€ insured envelope
if they really filter non paper envelopes with drivers in them with x-ray I got literally no other option than to send by DHL (17€ untracked uninsured or 46€ tracked and insured)

The DHL ecommerce isnt the fast DHL. Its a different product which i assume would be cheaper but i couldnt find pricing without getting a business quote

yes you need 200 per year minimum national and 5 per quarter international
no way i get that many national as most is international

does not make sense, as the LED is 12V, it woulsd smoky any AMCs plus its not regulated
Buck driver with 4S carrier mod is the way to go, we got full output and regulation

Ahhh, the custom X6R driver exists - I've used them recently.

This is a triple stack from PD68, old but latest driver design. All my pics on this triple LED X6R mod here: photobucket.com EagleEyeX6R Triple

 It's a great light now - triple 90 CRI XP-L2's, though I didn't get in an AUX LED - need to add that still.
