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 green 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 5-12V.
Note: The images for this button show an LED voltage rating of 5V. We have verified that the voltage range for the the LED to be 5-12V. We are currently communicating with our supplier for new documentation. Trust the branding on the button to verify your voltage requirement.

This is a sweet looking button! The LED is electrically-separate from the button, so I can blink the light; light when the button is pushed; or leave the light on all the time, all under Arduino control.
I also like the nice positive tactile feedback of the button: push it in a little bit and you hear and feel a nice ‘click’ that lets you know the button is pressed.
The pinout is simple: “+” and “-” are the LED pins; “C1”, “NO1” and “NC1” are the button Common, Normally-Open, and Normally-Closed connectors.
I also love the look and the mounting. It fits nicely with Art Deco or chrome themes.
Using this for a speedometer reset button in a hot rod. It’s nice quality and I like how deep it is. Will be using these in the future for sure.
