A previous answer mentioned the white star being lit when pressed: this isn't mentioned in the product description. Does it have a bulb/LED? If so, are there separate terminals for the light? I just want a button that gives a short circuit when pressed.

I''m not familiar witht the term ''momentary action'' - Is this switch locking, or non?
Asked by: Anonymous
no - it's momentary action - this means the switch is on only as long as it is pressed.
