Pushbutton switches. (What's Hot).

Brighter LEDs have been designed for YB, LB, and KB Series illuminated pushbutton switches.

Engineers can specify single-element LEDs with or without built-in resistors. The LEDs with built-in resistors are available in 5, 12, and 24 V ratings. Built-in resistors require less assembly

Available in red, amber, or green, the brighter LEDs enable engineers to design panel displays that allow light to radiate further and illuminate the full face of the pushbutton cover.

In addition, YB, LB, and KB Series switches come with protective guards in many shapes. There is a spring-loaded version for added security. Various models feature PC adapters in single-pole or double-pole configurations, with straight-PC or right-angle mount for single-pole options.

The new LEDs are rated with an ambient temperature range of -25[degrees]C to +50[degrees]C, making them suitable for the majority of applications using LED illuminated pushbuttons.
