Description: This is a perfect choice if you are in need of a heavy duty push button! These metal push buttons are a very tough, small, panel-mount momentary switch with an illuminated red LED ring. It is a SPDT with 16mm threading and 1mm pitch. This button is perfect for basic On/Off functions. Overall length (including leads) is 1.5" and has small solder lugs for connection. These momentary buttons are rated up to 3A and 250VAC while the LED is rated for 5V.


  • Stainless Steel Body
  • IP65 Waterproof Rating
  • Momentary Operation Type

  • I was planning to use this switch to interrupt a 12V 6A power supply running a series of LED light strips on my cabinets. Is the amperage provided by the power supply too high for this switch?

  • Any help in using an arduino to read the switch? I’m trying to read the momentary switch on a digital pin.

  • What is the LED forward voltage or forward current? Does this have a current limiting resistor already installed? If so how much power does the LED consume? I ask because of a off grid system that I am working on and need things to be very power efficient.

  • What board are you hooking these into in the photo above?

  • Are these difficult to press if you have big fingers? I’ve tried a similar looking button in the past and I had to push it with my pinky, and it had sharp edges which hurt my lateral nail fold.

  • These look great - I’m going to have to order some to play around with… How much travel do these have, and do the have a tactile click when they engage?

    It would be great if you made an RGB LED version of this.

    Also, it would be very cool if the metal button cap had an electrical connection so you could use a capacitive switching circuit to get two levels of switching in a single switch (kind of like cameras that use a light press to focus, and a full press for the shutter).

    • they do have a click. they actually have a good amount of travel, so it’s hard to accidentally press them. you certainly have to push them in a bit.

  • so, the LEDs in these are electrically connected to the buttons how exactly? are they always on? or do they have pins that are independent of the button that can be wired to a micro-controller?

    • there are 5 pins on the bottom. three are for the switch and two are for the LED. it works separately. apply power, it lights up, take away power, it turns off (and gets upset at you). the switch part is independent.

      • If that’s the case, please correct the features for the locking versions which says ‘(1NO1NC/2NO2NC)’. The voltage drop on the LEDs would be nice, too, in case 5V isn’t handy — a regulator seems a bit much for one LED. Thanks.

      • okay! that’s what i was hoping for! i’ll be getting a couple!

  • You stocked them! Now I’m gonna have to order one or ten!

Low profile, bright and easy to see and no need for external resistors for the LED
