A couple of questions:

What configuration of toggle switch (SPST, SPDT, etc) would I need to do the following:

Down position - Off - Input not connected to any output

Center position - Low - Input connected to one output

Up position - High - Input connected to second output

This would be used to feed a strobe power supply that offers both a low and a high output. A source of supply for this switch would also be appreciated.

Second question:

The Rotax 503 wiring diagram calls for a 15-amp fuse between the rectifier-regulator and the positive battery terminal. Would there be any reason not to use a combination toggle switch/circuit breaker, such as the W31X2M1G-15 from Wicks Aircraft Supply for this purpose?

Thank you!

It would be much easier, and perfectly acceptable, to do it this way:

UP = HIGH
MIDDLE = OFF
DOWN = LOW

A simpl SPDT with a center position OFF would work. These are available at Chief Aircraft, Wicks, Aircraft Spruce, Digikey, Jameco, to name a few.

Stupid, I know, but since all of the other switches will be "down" when "off", I would like to keep things consistent...
