Enclosure Power Switch

I have built an enclosure and would like to add a power switch to the front of the unit. However, as the power supply has 2 sets of 24V power cords leading to the Einsey board which set should I use to add the power switch? Left, Right or Both (looking at the Einsey board)? I realise I could simply open the power supply and rewire the switch but I was hoping to not have to void the warranty.

Thanks but that doesn’t help my situation, currently I have my raspberry pi and my enclosure lighting on seperate power switches, I would like to do the same for my printer, I simply need to know where to wire the switch in.

The power connector of the power supply you should make a switch.

Both pairs.

They run in parallel to be able to handle the power (Amps). 

I would put a switch before the power supply (switching 240V), as you want to have it powerless when you switch the printer off.

Hi,

i run a power strip from the wall with cables from the raspberry pi, enclosure lighting, and prusa i3 mk3 power.. power supply is mounted outside the enclosure.  The power strip has a toggle button.. but it is plugged into a smart switch which connects to iOS and Android... I can turn it off from work if the print fails.

each printer has a camera with remote access and it’s own smart plug.
