LED wiring
« on: December 07, 2017, 09:29:24 pm »
I'm sure this has been covered a thousand times but for some reason I cant find the answer I'm looking for. I have an Ipac2 for my buttons and Utrac trackball. I bought the LED kit for the Utrac but not exactly sure how to wire it up? Don't want to buy a separate LED controller for just one LED. Can I just hook the yellow wire to a 5v pin on the Ipac and the red (only color I want to use)wire to a pin labeled ground on the Ipac? Thanks for your help in advance!!

Thats correct although the black wire needs to also be connected to a GND pin.
