Despite its compact size, the Sparkfun Metal Pushbutton is a heavy-duty button. It can withstand harsh conditions, thanks to its stainless steel body and IP65 weatherproof rating. This makes it a reliable choice for outdoor applications or environments exposed to dust and water.
The button's latching operation type adds to its usability. Once pushed, it maintains its 'on' or 'off' state until pushed again. This feature is particularly useful in situations where the power supply might be interrupted.
The illuminated white LED ring is another notable feature of the Sparkfun Metal Pushbutton. It ensures the button is easily visible, even in low-light conditions. The LED has a voltage range of 5-12V, making it compatible with a variety of power sources.
The Sparkfun Metal Pushbutton is also tamper-resistant, adding an extra layer of security for applications where unauthorized access is a concern.
