Notes
• LEDs are an integral part of the switch and are not available separately.
E
• The LED circuit is isolated and requires an external power source.
• If the source voltage exceeds the rated voltage, a ballast resistor is required.
–
The resistor value can be calculated by using the formula shown here.
• The changes to G and GW LEDs do not affect any external dimensions of the switches.
• Contact the factory if further details are needed.
