E-Stim switch… bad idea or good idea?

Unread post by Sissybecky »

I have a 2B box, and there are times I want to play with more than 2 (bipolar) electrodes. I was thinking a simple solution would be to wire a 4P2T switch to a set of 3.5mm plugs, and then I could switch from (for instance) 2 bi-polar nipple clamps to some fun toys “downstairs”.

If this works well, I’d like to explore using some relays instead. However, before I even embark, I have one burning question: What are the consequences of momentarily breaking connection if the power is turned on?

Thanks for the input!

That is a good question and one I do not know the answer, I tink you would need to experiment a bit to find out.

Judging from my experience when a sketchy DIY adapter has made intermittent contact, you could be in for a bit of a jolt when you flick the switch... I found it was two or three times as intense as the level being used at the time. It led me to consider the possibility of employing a normally closed pushbutton to toggle the power for an extra bit of oomph on demand...
