How to wire LED button

by RetroJunkie on Tue Aug 20, 2019 5:17 pm

I purchased this:

https://www.adafruit.com/product/916

How can I wire so when I press it down (on) it lights up the red ring LED and when you press it again to (off) it turns off the red ring LED?

I'm running this power button on 5volts DC. I[m guessing positive 5volts to Positive connector on LED. then negative LED lead wired to NO connector which gets the negative 5 volt lead on this as well. diagram?

T

Thanks.

Not really, but after messing with it Yes. I found a solution. I have a 12volt line (positive) that is on a rocker switch. so I went this direction instead of the 5volt. added a 470ohm on the down stream of the 12volt and boom. good. thanks.
