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.

Customer Comments

  • Do these have some sort of regulator inside them to control the LED? I can’t tell any difference in brightness when connecting to 5v or 12v regulated power. Does this mean they’ll be ok to use in a 14v car installation?

  • “These buttons are rated up to 3A and 250VAC while the LED is rated for 5V.” Can I use them with 5V Arduino even though they are 250VAC? Or do I have to specifically have to use DC rated buttons?

  • Finally! I have never been able to find a good source for these, even though I see them all over the place. THANK YOU!

Independent light and button; tactile click

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.

really high qaulity

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.

Awesome button!

I bought this for the trigger button of an Arduino controlled catapult I’m building and it works great! The LED ring lights up brightly and looks nice. It’s kind of small, but still easy to push. It makes a nice clicking noise when clicked.

I will definitely use more of these in my future projects.

Good, so far

The product is fine, but your customer service is not so fine. Earlier this yesr, I wanted to order 39 of these switches. You only had 22 in stock. I talked to one of your people, trying to have you backorder the 17 switches, but no dice. Even though my overall order was for more than $600, I now have to reorder the additional 17 switches I need, with no quanity discount and also have to pay for shipping. It should of been very simple, and good business, for you to take my full order, shipped what you have and then wiat for the additional items. But you chose not to.


Sorry about this experience with the service department. I reached out to the customer service manager and he said he would be happy to handle your case. You can reach them via email at cservice@sparkfun.com
