I've having a fine time trying to find a switch like this. I need the wider cap version, 17.3mm wide (the one in the picture is 12.4mm) with a red cap and single LED hole.

 

Ideally on the shelf at a distributors as I only need about 20 of them.

 

'Rocker switch' and 'keyboard switch' throw up hundreds of wrong search result.

Is a momentary contact, NO switch?

If you could get a better photo, you could try a google image search on it ...

 

(at the moment, it just thinks it's an "electrical connector")

 

EDIT

 

Sometimes putting the item on a scanner can get a good close-up picture.

 

(depends on the scanner)

Top Tips:

  1. How to properly post source code - see: https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment... - also how to properly include images/pictures
  2. "Garbage" characters on a serial terminal are (almost?) invariably due to wrong baud rate - see: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/serial-communication
  3. Wrong baud rate is usually due to not running at the speed you thought; check by blinking a LED to see if you get the speed you expected

I try and avoid Google wherever possible but it looks like it might be known as an 'SP86' switch. Millions of sellers in the Far East, I just need to find someone who will sell me 20 and get them here in less that 60 days.

Mouser lists them but non-stocked, I would call them and see what they can do for you.

 

107-SP86-B1-1-01-EV for the Red/Red version

Mountain Switch

 

They stock a white cap/red led version if that would do

107-SP86-B1-4-01-EV

I have bought that switch from Grayhill switches in the past if that helps

Thanks all. I think I have found a way to do this.... It looks like Mouser have some red caps in stock which I can swap over with the caps on some switches I already have. Now all I need to do is think of another £45 worth of things to buy to get free shipping.
