    Anyone ever run into a DPDT switch with LED?

    Anyone ever bump into ON-OFF-ON DPDT toggle switch with a built in led?

    Like these at Mouser ? The DPDT are at the bottom of the page - looks like more choices in SPDT. Rocker switches with Lights are pretty easy to come by as well, but I haven't seen any that are small if you're looking for those. (I would have bought some mini lighted rockers for a project I'm working on if I could have found them.)

    I have one extra... maybe, I will let you know when i get home where i got them. They sent me samples. It has a blue LED...unfortunatly it doesn't stop at the off position, you have to balance it there

    Carling Technologies makes a bunch of switches in various configurations. http://toggle-switches.carlingtech.c...switch__48.asp

    Check out their rocker switches too. Lots of cool stuff.

    Here it is
    http://www.nkkswitches.com/

    These are the ones referenced in the pdf from digikey

    I got two of the TL series with the blue led. I havn't wired them up yet though. Seth is going to help me with a diagram tomorrow.

    The only bad thing like i mentioned is that they have to be balanced to stay in the off position

    That link to the farnel site references the NKK switches.

    However they don't have the one that i am looking for. After more research i found that the switch i configured and had samples sent to me is an on-none-on type switch (hence the problem with balancing the switch in the center) and I need an on-off-on type switch. So I am having the materials guy at my work have a look for some switches.

    The main requirments are that it has a blue LED, DPTD, and On-Off-On positions, Smaller is better. Can anyone help me with this?
