Push Buttons

Push buttons are electrical switches that are actuated by pressing them. It is frequently used to begin an action or to control a device, such as a doorbell or a computer mouse.

Push Button Switch


A pushbutton switch is a mechanical device used by an operator to manually press a button to control an electrical circuit that operates an internal switching mechanism. Pushbutton switches come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and configurations depending on the application. Easy to install, the screw terminals eliminate welding problems, simply connect the switch to your circuit. Used in electrical applications such as lighting and accessories, most DC electrical projects.


Types of Push Button Switches


Push buttons are of 2 Types: 

  1. Momentary Push Button Switch: A Momentary Push Button Switch allows the electricity flow between its two contacts while the button is pressed. It requires continuous compression on the button to keep the device at “ON” state.
  2. Non-Momentary Push Button Switch: A Non-Momentary Push Button Switch is a Normally Open (NO) Switch. It Turns “ON” temporarily only while the switch is Pressed. eg. Doorbell.

Applications of Push Button Switches:

Push Button Switches are widely used for circuits control in electromagnetic starter, contactor, relays, DIY projects and other electric circuits.

Some common uses of push button switches are:

  • Door Bells
  • Coffee machines
  • Refrigerators
  • Computer
