100mm Large Arcade Buttons

by BourqueM on Sun Nov 10, 2019 5:59 pm

What is the current draw of the large LED/Push buttons (100mm) Model ADA1185. I'm working on a project that I will need 5 of these, but only one will be lite at a time, and I'm also looking for recommendation on either an Arduino or Adafuit programmable process/control board that will power these LED lights, and be able to interface some sort of a LCD Display.
Thanks in advance

It depends on the voltage. The built-in resistor puts the current at about 25mA when the button is connected to a 12V source.

The LEDs are white IIRC, so you can assume the voltage across the LED will be about 3V when it's lit.

That would be just about all of them. The Arduino Uno, or our equivalent Metro 328 is a good starter board:
