I am doing quite a lot of heavy modifications to my PC case, and I am stuck on an issue involving a Capacitive Anti-Vandal Momentary switch (CS4M2FR information) as I have next to no electronic experience. I want to wire the switch in parallel to the current switch so that I can use it as an alternative switch located on the top of the case which is an easier to reach location then behind the lockable front panel door.
Through trial and error I have worked out I need to connect the ground (Black) to the negative pin for the power switch, the NPN (Brown) to the positive pin for the power switch and the 5-24VDC to the positive pin for the reset switch. On page 4 linked here of the switch data sheet. It details an example use case that is directly applicable to what I require however my limited electrical knowledge means I can’t decipher it.
If I ground one of the colour led wires against a metal panel then that corresponding led lights up constantly regardless of whether the switch is in an off or on state. If I connect a colour led wire to the negative pin for the power LED then it lights when the system is off and turns off when the system is on (the reverse of what I want).
Thank you in advance to any help you can offer.
