LED Tactile Button - Orange

This is a simple LED-illuminated tactile button with an orange cap. It’s just like a basic tactile button, but it lights up orange! So now you can get visual feedback, or light up your project. These have a 12mm body and are rated for 50mA. They don’t easily fit into a breadboard, but check below for a breakout board. We also have these in a a variety of colors, check below to see the others.

Switch Basics

May 7, 2013

A tutorial on electronics' most overlooked and underappreciated component: the switch! Here we explain the difference between momentary and maintained switches and what all those acronyms (NO, NC, SPDT, SPST, ...) stand for.

Core Skill: Soldering

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.

2 Soldering

Skill Level: Rookie - The number of pins increases, and you will have to determine polarity of components and some of the components might be a bit trickier or close together. You might need solder wick or flux.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

1 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Noob - You don't need to reference a datasheet, but you will need to know basic power requirements.

Customer Comments

  • Can someone Please provide the pin out for these buttons?

  • since sparkfun isn’t doing a good job of providing data for these buttons… this seems to work best for me:

    orange led juice = 3vdc 10mA

    button = 12v

    button current max = ???
