Turning a 7805 on/off with a Push to Make Switch

Not open for further replies.

Hi All,

I am trying to design a circuit to do the following:

Use a Momentary Push To Make Switch to toggle the input of a 7805 on/off

The 7805 is supplied by regulated 12v so i need a circuit that switches its output between 0v and 12v using a Momentary Switch.

I was hoping to find a design or at least a starting point somewhere but have had no luck so far.

Any Suggestions / ideas would be great.

Thanks :)

Why not use the proper on-off switch to begin with and leave the momentary one for momentary jobs?
