Description

Fire up your engines because these are the hot rods of toggle switches! Equipped with an aerodynamic blue protective casing, and a diffused blue LED at the tip of the switch, this Blue LED Toggle Switch is sure to add some flair (and flare!) to your project.

Often seen on control panels, now you can mimic a racing car, fighter jet, submarine status panel, factory controls, or anything really. 12V max, the LED lights up at 3V so you can use it with lower voltages too. They say "20 A" on the side but we recommend 1-2A max.

Since there's an LED inside, but only 3 pins, they're a little different to wire than most toggle switches.

  • The anode (positive side) of the LED is connected through a resistor to the pin with a 'headlamp' (= D) symbol on it
  • The cathode (negative side) of the LED is connected to the pin with the ground symbol, which is the pin that is sticking to the side of the switch.
  • The switch connects and disconnects the (+) pin and the 'headlamp' pin

That means you have a few options for wiring:

  • Switch to something on the bottom
  • If you want the LED to always be on, provide 3-12V between the ground and headlamp pin
  • If you want the LEDs to be on the ground, provide 3-12V on the (+) pin and connect ground to the ground pin.

The protective cover will automatically turn off when flipped closed, but you can simply remove it if it isn't desired.
