TO view the link just click on it, after it fails to load, highlight and delete everything before this:http://www.ebay.com/itm/220807727775?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p398 4.m1497.l2649
then reload with the new link. Unfortunately we have to view links this way until HBT admins fix the fyurl bug.
So the "clicker" must take this data out of the link:http://www.fyurl.com/rr.php?site=www.homebrewtalk.com&url=
It says it's rated for 10A 120VAC but then just says 12V LED. It seems really inconvenient unless to use this switch unless you already have a 12VDC power source in your panel. For a couple dollars more, Auber sells a good pushbutton switch that you can just use 120VAC or even 240VAC to light the LED.
If you're stuck with these buttons you'll have to use a 12VDC power supply. The cheapest way is to use a "wall wart" but they're also bulky and not intended to be mounted in a panel. Another way would be to purchase a 12vdc power supply. Here's one from Amazon:http://www.amazon.com/AC90-265V-DC12...409313&sr=1-45
