- June 30th, 2013Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0The right directionBVG9Volt | 19-24I would recommend this to a friend!I use this switch on some of my 9V Lego trains to set the secondary motor. Sometime it happens that the secondary motor turn is the other direction of the 9V motor. Then I connect a switch between the convert cable (8886) and the train motor (88002) to set the PF motor in the right direction. I use one in the High Speed Train (4512) because otherwise the 9V turns forward while the PF motor turns backward. I mounted the switch on the roof. Connected the PF motor on the switch and it was fixed.Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Value for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Building Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55LEGO® Power Functions Control Switch
- September 15th, 2016Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Works well, does its job, but lacking pinholes...Taris | 35-44I would recommend this to a friend!The switch is not only directional but also has a moderate length cable which is super helpful when making any PF driven system. In fact, you can overcome the limited current output of IR receiver (note that IR receiver V1 cannot operate any stacked LEGO PF motors in full power unless you dedicate more than 2 channels to the motors) with this switch + a servo motor. It's actually how hobby grade RC models worked before the speed controller was affordable. 1 servo controls steering, the other one controls Acceleration with a switch connected to drive motor. But!! It doesn't have any Technic pin holes... You must get some stud parts to install it onto your Technic model properly. But most of Technic models are stud-less today... ouch!! So, LEGO!! add some pinholes!!Building Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?45LEGO® Power Functions Control Switch
- December 28th, 2011Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0works but not compatiable with 7 speed IRAdultFanOfLegos2011 | 45-54I would recommend this to a friend!This is a straight current 3 pole switch that allows forward, stop, reverse ( there's also a black microswitch to reverse the switch's polarity). If this switch is between an "on" AAA battery pack and a motor it can put the motor in forward or reverse or it can turn the motor off . If this switch is between an "on" AAA battery pack and an IR remote unit, this switch will be fixed in the "ON" state (i.e. the allow the pulse modulated current from the IR remote unit to go through no matter what position the 3 pole switch is in) when the 7 speed IR sends a signal to go on. I was trying to use this switch as a kill switch for an IR controlled conveyor belt - until I realize this switch would not work with a pulse modulated current. .Level of DifficultyAverage rating1out of 5 stars1.0Building Experience: Novice LEGO builderWas this helpful?45LEGO® Power Functions Control Switch
- April 6th, 2010Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Works goodBandicoo |I would recommend this to a friend!I ran out of options with a Mindstorms project. I needed another touch sensor to detect when a part reached the far end of travel and needed to be reversed. This switch worked great for that application. The placement of the second connector right next to the switch caused a few problems. It would have been better to have a straight wire with the switch in the middle and a connectors at each end.Play ExperienceAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Value for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Was this helpful?45LEGO® Power Functions Control Switch
