No it's not that one. That is a momentary switch. You need a latching switch.Can someone tell me is this - eao switch product code : 01 151.025 the correct push button?

You want 01.281.025. That is the one that SSL use.
But be aware it is a one pole changeover switch. If you are using it with the Super Sidechain board then fine, but if not then you would need a 2 pole changeover switch and maybe even another pole for the LED (or lamp).
EAO also do another version of this switch that will work fine:
It's a bit cheaper. I think because it has silver contacts rather than gold.
OK, I'm using this supersidechain board.barclaycon said:If you have the supersidechain board then the standard single pole type is fine.
The majority of the switching is done on the PCB.
Here are the details:
That takes care of compression ON/OFF.
For Bypass, I have no idea what bypass scheme you are using.
Assuming it's relays, then again the standard switch will be fine.
Thanks Eddie, I've had a look at the schweitzer ones but they don't come with white lens, only clear colors.SaMpLeGoD said:I used some from Schweitzer, they are available at Farnell Here.
They have square ones too, I used this SPDT and etch a board with a DPDT relay to do the job I want...
You need to buy the colored caps and opt for LED or Lamp... lamps are cheaper, but has a high curent's consumption (150mA), and inserts for the legends...
It may cost around €13 each one complete... much cheaper that EAO... it's crazy their price!
Ahh, I'm finally getting the answer I was looking for, thanks a lot.barclaycon said:If I remember rightly, the EAO switch has 4 pins marked 1,2,3,4 for switching
and 2 pins a) and b) for the lamp.
Pins 1 & 2 are NC and pins 3 & 4 are NO.
So, from the supersidechain PCB, wire the switch action pins to 3 & 4 on the EAO.
The LED connections from the PCB go to a) and b).
If you are using a LED lamp in the EAO, make sure you know which is + and which is -.
And yes, you are right Eddie - EAO switches are a ridiculous price.
Ok...could you explain me the difference with a normal led ?barclaycon said:The component values on the SSC PCB are for an LED (to show IN and OUT).
If you are going to use a T5 wedge lamp (like in the EAO switch) or a LED lamp, then choose a 24volt type and change the value of the resistor on the PCB from 2k2 to 330 ohms.
