Push-button Power Switch Breakout PRODUCT ID: 1400

by twuelfing on Tue May 15, 2018 5:48 am

Hi!
i am working on a project and i would like to use the Push-button Power Switch Breakout PRODUCT ID: 1400
i am having a problem getting the eagle cad files to open.
also it would be great to get some physical dimensions of the unit so i can be sure to get the mechanical bits right. for a button like this it would be good to know the hole size and the mounting distances.

is this information available anywhere or does each customer need to measure this and develop their own dimensional specs?

thanks for all the great work I love every adafruit product i have worked with!
And thanks to anyone that can help me.

There are some basic dimensions on the product page. For more detailed info, using the CAD file is the way to go. What problems were you having opening it in Eagle?

i have little experience with manipulating PCB files so i am probably doing something wrong.
see the attached picture for the error.

thanks for the fast reply!

Here's the repo with the Eagle files:
https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-Pu ... Switch-PCB

How did you download them?

That's a fine way. Did you extract all the files in the zip? How are you trying to open them?

I extracted the zip to my desktop, opened the free version of eagle I downloaded from Autodesk, I then tried opening the board file which failed, then the schematic file which failed. Both producing the same error as seen in my previous post.

Thanks.

That file opens fine in Eagle 9.0.0 free version. You might try re-downloading those files. I don't bother extracting the files just double click on them in the zip and they open in Eagle for me.

I downloaded the zip again and everything is working!

Thanks.
Any idea where to get caps for this button? Or do applications usually have this poking directly through a panel?

I don't.

Yep. The little black plastic top is essentially the cap.
