IT'S FUSION TIME! Here we give you a lovely LED/button combination, that is a decent size, which does not get in the way of your project panel, but big enough to press with ease. With it's built in LED, you can control this separately from the switch action to either indicate. or with the deliciously warm glow that emits from it, you can just have it there to look good.
The body is a black plastic with the LED built inside. There are two contacts for the button and two contacts for the LED, one marked + and one -. The forward voltage of the LED is about 2.2V so connect a 220 to 1000 ohm resistor in series just as you would with any other LED to your 3V or higher power supply. Need some cables to connect them up? Click here
This particular button has a Red body, and is momentary, normally open. The two switch contacts are not connected normally. When you push the button they will temporarily connect until the button is released. The LED is separated from the button, so you can make it light up when pressed, light up when not pressed, always lit, etc.
We have these buttons in a lovely range of colours (5 in total) Click here to view them.
