Q. Switch is to light up several LEDs in water level meter. However, I need them to be dc, not ac. Will these be okay or is there a similar dc version anywhere?
A. Hi Kevin, thanks for your question. These push button switches are fine to run on DC voltage.

Q. do these switches click so you can let go and the other compoments still work?
A. Hi Damian Thanks for your question. These switches are non- latching so will not stay on when released – you require a latching switch such as 78-0233.
