An answer to a question, whether it´s nicer to use a push-button with a backlight or not is perhaps a fully subjective matter. However besides an aesthetic point of view we know about at least two main reasons to use an illuminated push-button: easier orientation/ operation in a dark environment and an indication of a push-button status (activation of a given function).
So if we´ll decide for an illuminated push-button, it´s certainly beneficial to have a possibility to choose from a wide range of types and caps. In our offer can be found the best from this segment - components from a Danish MEC with over 70 years experience in production of push-buttons and switches.
Basic production portfolio of MEC switches can be divided into series „3“, „4“ and „5“. Seriesa „5“ i.e. for example 5G or 5E is the newest and the most perspective series, but also the “2” or “4” series are still popular. Types like 4FTH922 or 5GTH9358222 (4ATH98222) represent a ready-made solution with an LED. It´s also worth to mention a universal type 3FTL6, This type has besides a reliability, pleasant actuation and a crisp sound at switching yet one positive fature - it can be equipped with any 3mm LED. All that is necessary is to form leads into a required shape and apply a suitable cap. Perhaps the biggest advantage of this solution is a possibility to use a whatever LED according to your choice and this way to make a customized push-button (especially in smaller production batches). Naturally, at bigger production batches it´s possible to agree with a producer a production of various customized versions.
The most suitable type for your application can be easily chosen in the MEC catalogue (11MB).
