    Led

    First off hello everyone,

    I am currently building a RJ cockpit i have been looking for some pushbuttons with LED's in them. I have found plenty in the Digi-Key Corporation catalog. What i dont know is what the LED voltage needs to be. For instance the E-switch momentary PB 5511 has an LED rating of 2.2v @ 30ma or there is a 16mm PB switch that is rated for 24VDC can i use that and just provide a 24VDC power for the LED instead of using the power from the FDS Interfaceit card (I am preety sure that the USB is not going to give me 24VDC) anyway If anyone could help me with the type of LED voltage i will need that would be fantastic. Thanks

    Well i did a different search in the forums (Voltage) and i am pretty sure i have answered my own questions. I found the links that describe LED's and how to wire them up. On a side note I will have my website up and running in the next few weeks and will post images of my progress.
