LED ON/OFF Illuminated Triangle pushbutton

by Ac429hill on Thu May 28, 2020 5:19 pm

Hi,

We purchased the on/off illuminated triangle 1960’s button. We need to know which plug is the output to the device and which is to the battery. I couldn’t find a diagram explaining the tech info. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

There should be + and - symbols to indicate the LED connections. This photo may also help, which show only the LED being powered:

There are two contacts for the button and two contacts for the LED, one marked + and one -. The forward voltage of the LED is about 2.2V so connect a 220 to 1000 ohm resistor in series just as you would with any other LED to your 3V or higher power supply.
