Waterproof Metal Pushbutton with Red LED Ring - 16mm Momentary Stainless, 6V LED
These stainless steel metal buttons are rugged and waterproof and look really good. Simply drill a 16mm hole into any material up to 10mm thick and you can fit these in place, there's even a rubber gasket to keep any water out of the enclosure.
On the front of the button is a slightly raised metal actuator, surrounded by a red plastic LED ring. We find the raised version better for tactile feel than the flat version. On the back there are 3 contacts for the button (common, normally-open and normally-closed) and 2 for the red LED ring (+ and -). Connect 3 to 6V to the LED to have it light up nicely, there's a built in resistor. If you want to use this with a higher voltage, say 12V or 24V, simply add a 470 ohm resistor in series with the LED connection to keep the LED current at around 20mA.
This button is a momentary push button, when you press it the 'normally-open' contact shorts to the common contact. When you release it, the contacts open up again.
The switch and LED are separated, so you could wire it to turn on when pressed or vice versa or whatever you wish! Check the specifications for more information!
