Aside from that, you will also learn plenty of interesting things about the power push button switch that will help you understand more about how it works in its most common applications.
So let’s start discovering everything about the power push button switch and become a wiser consumer today.
1. What is the power push button switch?
Power push button switch
The power push button switch is a distinct kind of switch because of the power symbol that’s engraved or laser etched on its head.
There are other terms that refer to the power push button switch such as power push button, push power button, push button power, push button power switch, button power switch, push power switch, power switch button, or power switch push button.
It is specially manufactured to be a power switch button that triggers the start of any operation in many applications.
But just like the other standard push button switches; the power push button switch has many kinds and different configurations to accommodate your different application needs.
Manufacturers understand that consumers like you need to have numerous options of power push button switches hence they offer different variants and specifications.
The different descriptions below can help you when choosing the right power push button switch:
- Diameter size – You can find sizes from 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 16mm, 19mm, 22mm, and 25mm up to 40mm or bigger diameter sizes that can be requested from the manufacturer.
- Shapes – The power push button switch is typically round shaped but you can also find square-shaped power push button switch as well as low profile or miniature types.
- Colors – You can find many different colors of the power push button switch such as natural, chrome, white, red, blue, black, green, orange, gold, and so on.
- Types of terminals – The most common pins you can find are the screw type or solder lug but you can also find flying leads, blades, or feed-through types.
- The shape of the actuator – The actuator or the head also has different shapes like flat, raised, domed, concave, chamfer head, or squarehead and all have the power symbol either embossed, engraved, or laser etched.
- Illumination type – The power push button switch generally has one illumination type which is the power symbol but sometimes it is combined with a ring surrounding it and both are backlit illuminated.
- LED colors – You can also find varieties of colors which can be a single color, bi-color, even tri-color, and these single colors or color combinations are green, blue, red, yellow, orange, white, and so on. These switches are labeled with the “LED” term, for example, LED power switch button, LED with push button, push button com LED, power switch LED, power button with LED, power switch with LED, or RGB power button.
There may other parts that are not included in the list above but these parts are the most common and can also be easily remembered when you are shopping for the power push button switch.

2. What is the story behind the power symbol of the power push button switch?
If you wonder how the power symbol you see in the power push button switch came to be, there’s a story behind it.
In the early times, the toggle switch was used as the power control switch.
It has two physical positions for the “on” and “off” functions respectively.
Eventually, the terms “on” and “off” were replaced by symbols as the technology becomes widely used.
These symbols are “0” for on while “I” for the off function.
The circle and a bar or line you see in the power symbol today, are from the concatenation of these symbols.
To explain this logically, the symbols represent the binary states, 0 and 1.
The zero “0” also indicates that the circuit is open while the line indicates a closed circuit.
The power push button switch has these two symbols because it can switch “on” and “off” the circuit.
In a toggle switch, the “on” and “off” symbols represent its two states.
The International Electrotechnical Commission has treated these symbols as a standard worldwide.
The “I” and “O” symbol is a widely accepted symbolizing the power switch and it is a symbol that simplifies its labeling since there are many different electrical and mechanical configurations.
The power symbol became the accepted indicator regardless of the form of a mechanical switch, whether it is a push button switch type, toggle, slide switch, etc.
Fun Fact: The power symbol isn’t as powerful as you think
In 1973, the IEC released the universal graphical symbols where the power symbol was used for the “standby” mode (IEC 60417-5009) and also indicates that the equipment is on sleep mode or drawing a low power.
However, since it has become confusing for consumers to understand the exact meaning of the symbol until you try pressing it, the waning moon symbol was proposed to become the standby mode instead.
The IEEE and CEC published the IEEE 1621 with these changes back in December 2004.
Therefore the power symbol that you see on the power push button switches was originally used for sleep mode but now it is used to indicate that the equipment is “waking up” rather than sleeping.
Evolution of power push button switch symbol
3. What makes up one unit of the power push button switch?
You could be familiar with some of the parts of the power push button switch since it has the same parts as the other standard push button switches.
But there are other parts and sections of the power push button switch that are good to know just in case you need to name a certain part that is missing or maybe needing a replacement.
Listed below are the general parts of the power push button switch:
- Button or actuator – This is the head of the power push button switch where the power symbol can be found.
- Body or shell casing – In a more technical term, this is the enclosure of the power push button switch that “encloses” its internal parts and keeps all the parts together in one single unit.
- Terminals or pins – These are the metal electrical conductors attached at the bottom of the power push button switch where wires are connected and can come in with two up to 6 or more depending on the type of switch.
- LED or illumination – This is responsible for how the power push button switch emits light whether when it is “on” or “off” depending on how you wire it and it comes in different illumination colors.
- Hex nut or the mounting flange – This piece of hex shaped round metal is used to secure the mounting of the power push button switch by fastening it through the back or front depending on the type of switch.
- Rubber ring or O ring -This rubber material seals the clearance beneath the head of the power push button switch and the panel surface to prevent any elements from entering the back of the panel.
- Grooves -These are the depressions along the body of the power push button switch that helps the mounting flange tightly secure the switch.
- Stationary and movable contacts – These are made from conductive materials that are positioned inside the power push button switch.
- Coil spring – This allows the actuator of the power push button switch to compress when pushed and helps it bounce back to its original state when the pressure is released.

3. What color is recommended for the power push button switch?
Although for your DIY projects or your personal use, you can freely choose whatever colors you would like for your power push button switch.
However, if you will be using it for applications such as pieces of machinery or control panels, you may be required to comply with the IEC6004-1 or the Electrical Safety of machinery.
This requires that push button switches with start or connect function should have the colors green, white, black, or gray, and red is not acceptable.
If it is going to be used for an operation that starts when pressed and stops when the button is let go, it is required for the power push button switch to have either black, white, or gray color and the colors green, yellow, or red are not permitted.
For a reset function, the power push button switch should have the colors black, white, gray, or blue and if it is also used for the stop and disconnect function, the same colors are required except for blue.
If the power push button switch will have an alternate function such as start or on and stop or off, the colors mandatory are black, white, and gray while the colors green, yellow, or red is not allowed.
Green power push button switch
4. What are the ways to wire the power push button switch with LED?
You can wire the power push button switch with LED in two ways.
When you want the LED to be always on, and when you want the LED to only light up when you push the actuator of the power push button switch.
For instance, you have a 5 pin power push button switch with LED, and you want to wire it where the LED is always on regardless of whether it is turned “on” or “off”.
The same rule applies to the illuminated power button, illuminated power switch, or lighted power switch.
Here’s how you can wire an always “on” power push button switch with LED:
- Wire the NO to the “+” to the device.
- Then another wire to connect the “C“ pin to the power source.
- And a separate wire to connect the “-“ for ground.
But if you prefer to only have the LED “on” when you press the power push button switch, here’s how you can wire it:
- Wire the NO pin and the “+” pin to the power source.
- Then a separate wire connects the “C” pin to the device.
- Then one more wire to connect to the “-“ pin for the ground.
If you notice, the only difference in the instruction is where you connect the NO and the positive pin which is either the power source or the device to change the way how the LED will lit up.
Usually, when you order a power push button switch, you will receive a wiring instruction specifically for the type of switch you’ve purchased.
If not, you can always refer back to your manufacturer to get a copy of its wiring instructions or you can revisit their website if they have posted an image of the wiring instruction on their product listing page.

5. What are the kinds of materials used to manufacture the power push button switch?
The power push button switches are made from several materials and this depends on the manufacturer.
Generally, the materials used to make the parts of the power push button switch are the following:
- Stainless steel 304 or 316L – Possesses anti corrosion and heat resistant properties (for example, LED metal push button momentary power switch).
- Anodized Aluminum – This is a versatile and lightweight material that has corrosion resistance properties.
- Gold and nickel-plated brass – It provide excellent corrosive resistance and a high class appearance.
- Gold and silver-plated copper – It is economical, lightweight, and long lasting.
There may be other materials that manufacturers use to build their power push button switches but the materials listed above are the most common.

6. What are the advantages and applications of the power push button switch?
The power push button switch has many advantages and applications that you might not know about.
When the power push button switch is high quality, you can be sure that you will gain plenty of benefits like the following:
- Attractive visual
- Easy to install
- Long service life
- Low maintenance
- Space saver
- Many selections to choose from
Flexible for any type of environment like the following:
- Pressured washdown
- Prone to flood
Because of these advantageous properties of the power push button switch, it is used in many applications by different industries and businesses as power switches that start machines, equipment, devices, and initiates operations in many factories from big machines to home’s small appliances and electronic devices.
Different applications of the power push button switch
7. Why power push button switches have different symbols in an electrical circuit?
In electrical circuits, you may find variations of symbols representing the power push button switch.
You’d wonder why they vary when they all represent the same switch.
This is because despite having the same name, there are configurations to the power push button switch in terms of poles and throws.
The poles and throws refer to the variations of the switch’s contact.
The pole or poles are the set of electrical terminals or contacts that are connected or belonging to a circuit or load.
The throw or throws are the positions or contact points that the switch can make.
These terms were abbreviated by the electronics industry to easily identify the type of switch and they are:
This is called the single pole and single throw power push button switch in its expanded term.
It is also known as the simple on and off switch, two-way switch for American wiring name, or one-way switch for British wiring name.
It has two terminals that are either connected or not connected to anything.
This is the single pole and double throw power push button switch which is also known as a three-way switch in the US while a two-way switch in the UK.
It is also called the simple changeover switch.
- DPST power push button switch
This stands for double pole single throw power push button switch and it is equivalent to two SPSTs controlled by a single unit of power push button switch.
This is called the double pole double throw power push button switch which is equivalent to two SPDT switches controlled by one power push button switch.
8. Is the power push button switch momentary or maintained type?
The power push button switch can be both.
You can find types like the momentary power switch or latching power switch, sometimes called maintained type.
For example, the momentary power switch PC.
Knowing which switch action you need is very important because they are very different from each other.
Here’s a brief explanation about the two switch actions of the power push button switch:
- Momentary power push button switch
In this switch action, when you press the button of the power push button switch, it springs back to its original state when you let go of the button.
Examples of this are doorbells, car horns, car power window controls, loading equipment controls, etc.
- Maintained power push button switch
This switch action is also called latching or latched.
In here, when you actuate the power push button switch, it will stay depressed and will only spring back to its original state when you push it again.
Examples of this are light switches, flashlight switch, audio component, and other application that needs a maintained switch action instead of momentary.

9. What are the ways to mount the power push button switches?
There are three main mounting styles available for the power push button switches and they are:
The power push button switch or panel mount power switch is mounted on a panel, hence the term panel mount was given.
It can also be called as pc mount push button switch for computer applications.
There are two ways under this mounting style, and they are the most common rear panel mount and the front panel mount.
The rear panel mount is when you mount the power push button switch behind the panel.
This means the mounting flange is inserted from the back of the switch which is behind the panel where it is mounted.
While the front panel mount is when you mount the power push button switch from the front of the panel.
You will easily determine if the power push button switch is front panel mount type when the grooves are found around its actuator because this is where the mounting flange is fastened.
Here, the power push button switch is mounted on a surface or a PCB (printed circuit board).
Typically, the power push button switches are low profile or miniature in this mounting style.
In this mounting style, the power push button switch is fitted on a surface and is leveled on the surface providing a better surface clearance.
In this mounting style, you have the option to install a switch cap to provide more protection to the power push button switch.
10. Why do modern electronics use power push button switches instead of rockers or toggles?
Most modern electronics use the power push button switches rather than any other type of switch; this is simply because of practicality.
The rocker and toggle switches are typically more expensive than push button switches.
They are also widely used for mains power switches as safety regulations impose a stricter requirement otherwise the mains power will not pass the safety certification.
You may see both types of switches in computers.
At the front of the computer’s system unit, you can find a power push button switch while at the back you will find a toggle switch that controls the mains supply.
While the power push button switch’s function is to switch the computer on, the toggle switch at the back keeps the power supply running unless it is flipped off.
The power push button switches are also called computer push button power switch, PC push button power switch, PC power button switch, power switch button PC, power switch for PC, PC power switches, PC power button, PC power push button, PC power on button, or power button switch PC.
You can also find custom types such as custom PC power switch, custom power button, custom power button PC, custom power switch for PC, or custom computer power button.

11. Why modern computers only have the power push button switch, unlike their predecessors?
You may have noticed that desktop computers nowadays only have one button in the front which is the power push button switch unlike most of the older versions of computers, where there’s a reset button switch.
The computer manufacturers find it more sensible to have the power push button switch remain and have the reset button removed.
Since the function of the reset button is to restart the computer which seems redundant to the main function of the power push button switch and that is to start the computer.
Although there’s a slight difference, the manufacturers decided to stand by their decision.
While the reset button was very useful especially when the computer freezes where all you need to do is to press hold the reset button and wait for the computer to restart, and the problem is solved.
The same is true when using the power push button switch.
If your computer completely freezes, you can also press the power push button switch to restart the computer.
However, if you don’t like this idea, you can find computer builders that produce system units with a small reset button until today.

12. Does the power push button switch in PCs consume power even when shut down?
Let’s be clear that the computer was shut down properly and not on “sleep” mode.
There’s a difference between the two states.
When the computer is shut down, it no longer draws any power from the power supply.
You will notice that the monitor goes black and the lights on your system unit turn off.
But when your computer is on “sleep” mode, it draws a small power from the power supply and you will notice that its indicator light is still blinking.
And if your computer has a power push button switch with LED, then it will stay lit up.
So, when the computer is shut down, all the apps are closed and it is completely turned off.
While putting your computer on “sleep” mode simply puts it on standby, and if you type anything on the keyboard or move the mouse, it will come alive again.
Laptop in standby mode
13. Where to find the power push button switch on wall mounted PCs?
If the system unit was mounted on the wall still using its original case, you would probably find the power push button switch on the front panel of its casing.
While some DIY removed the original case and the power push button switch is on the motherboard itself.
While the others have rewired the power push button switch and placed it in a switch box or a separate PC power button panel for a more appealing look.
Some people prefer a PC external power button or an external power switch for PC.
Wall mounted PCs save space and create a futuristic feeling as you adore it on your wall.
You can also customize your PC case power switch with an RGB PC power button for an illuminated power switch.
Power push button switch on motherboard
14. What happens when you press the power push button switch on a computer?
Several things are happening on the backside of things that you don’t see when you press the computer’s power push button switch.
The power push button switch is the trigger and the motherboard does the real on and off power switching.
When you press the power push button switch, you set off the trigger to the motherboard’s circuits to change its state.
Then different stages are performed:
- BIOS system starts up
- Stage 1 – boot loader (master boot record)
- Stage 2 – boot loader (LILO, GRUB, etc.)
- Initialize operation
All of these stages happen so fast, within seconds, until the operating system is loaded.
15. Why the power push button switch on the PC doesn’t work?
If your computer does not turn on even if you press the power push button switch, try to check the following:
- Is the power cable plugged in?
- Is the rocker switch in the back turned on?
- When you press the power push button switch, do you hear any sound or activity coming from the system unit?
- Is the chassis fan working?
- Did you notice any LED indicators that could have flashed for a brief moment?
If you answer yes to all of this, then the issue may lie on your motherboard.
If you answer no to the questions above, then your SMPS (switched-mode power supply) could be the problem and you may consider replacing it.
16. Did cars use the power push button switch?
Yes, they do.
Some hybrid models are equipped with a power push button switch that turns their engine on and off.
It works like a power push button switch of a computer since it turns on a computer system to start the internal combustion engine and charge the hybrid battery or power the drive wheels.
Electric cars also needed to be turned “on” rather than starting up the internal combustion engine.
Modern vehicles with the integrated computer system have duplicated this idea with the development of the engine start and stop push button.

17. Do pipe organs have a power push button switch?
Yes, they did.
An old pipe organ has a power push button switch located on its console.
If it is turned off, there’s not electricity flow, and the pipe organ will not produce a single sound.
When the power push button switch is turned on, the electricity flows to the blower motor causing it to perform a rotary motion producing the wind pressure.
This wind pressure will is needed for the pipe organ to produce its sound.
However, modern pipe organs may have a key switch instead of the power push button switch for this function.

18. Does the power push button switch have a long working life?
This depends on how the power push button switch is made.
If it is poorly made, you can’t expect that it will last longer and it may even be faulty the moment you receive it.
But if it is a high quality power push button switch, you can be sure that it will last for many years.
The working life of the power push button switch is presented in two categories, its mechanical life cycle, and its electrical life cycle.
The mechanical life cycle refers to the power push button switch’s mechanical parts while the electrical life cycle refers to the electrical parts which are usually the contacts inside it and its terminals.
A power push button switch that is high quality can have around a million or more mechanical life cycles and about 200K plus electrical life cycles.
Despite this, several factors can affect the power push button switch’s life cycles.
It is best that you know what these factors are so you can prevent shortening the working life of the power push button switch or affect its working performance.
Since the power push button switch will be used to switch machinery on or off, it will be subjected to frequent usage and sometimes abuse.
When it comes to this, you should choose an anti vandal power push button switch because this type of switch can endure repeated use.
- Environment setting
Sometimes the place where the power push button switch is located can also affect its working life cycle or its performance.
If the environment is where the power push button switch is going to be exposed to changing weather conditions, it is best to select the appropriate type of switch to protect itself from the harmful element.
You should consider choosing a water resistant power push button switch so that it is sealed to protect itself from the rain.
- Harsh temperatures
The materials making up the power push button switch may react to too high or too low temperatures.
Some parts can melt due to extremely high temperatures or in freezing temperatures; some parts may be stuck and become brittle until they break.
This is why you should know the manufacturer’s recommended temperature range which can be found in your power push button switch’s technical sheet.
- Frequent machinery movement
If the power push button switch is going to be used on machinery or equipment that frequently shakes, or vibrates, it can loosen the internal parts of the switch causing it to stop working.
Once again, you can choose the anti vandal power push button switch that is specifically built for this kind of condition.
- High current supplied to low voltage rating switches
There are different voltage ratings available for the power push button switch.
Make sure that the power supply will be appropriate for it, either a bit below its voltage rating or equal to.
Supplying a high current rating to the low voltage rated power push button switch can burn its contacts and damage them permanently.
You can find the voltage rating of the power push button switch on its product listing description, packaging information, or on the switch itself engraved on the bottom part of its body.
Example of technical data sheet for power push button switches
19. How to find a heavy-duty power push button switch?
If you are looking for a power push button switch that is heavy-duty, then you should look for one that has the IK10 seal.
It is the highest protection level a power push button switch can provide as protection against powerful impacts.
To obtain this seal, the manufacturer will submit their power push button switches to subsequent impact tests called the Charpy impact test and another required test which is the Drop weight impact test.
Each of them will test the durability and toughness of the power push button switch.
If the power push button switch passes a level, it will be given an appropriate IK rating.
The IK rating starts from 1 up to 10 and 10 is the highest rating.
So choosing a power push button switch with the IK10 seal can already provide you an assurance that it is tough and heavy duty.
20. How to find a waterproof power push button switch?
When you need to install the power push button switch on your yacht or boat controls, it is recommended to use a water resistant or waterproof type.
And a way to find whether the power push button switch has these properties is to look for the IP65, IP67, IP68, to IP69K seal.
This is the IP rating seal that determines whether the power push button switch and other types of switches are protected against solid and liquid elements.
And to acquire these IP rating seals, the manufacturer submits their power push button switch in different water tests such as splashing it with water, spraying it with a water jet, or submerging it underwater.
Each level becomes more intense and if the power push button switch passes a level it will be given its equivalent IP rating.
The highest is the IP69K seal which means that the power push button switch is completely sealed against dust and water ingress and can even be submerged underwater up to 3 meters depth for several minutes.

21. How to confirm if the power push button switch is top quality and safe?
There are ways to confirm if the power push button switch is safe for you to use or if it is top quality that it will last for a very long time and will work with high performance for the length of its service life.
Thankfully, there are independent organizations or governing bodies that regulate international safety and quality standards for electrical or electronic products which includes the power push button switches.
Some of them are the ones listed below together with a brief description of what they do:
- CE – This administrative seal may not be a quality or certification mark but this confirms that the manufacturer of the power push button switch follows the European standards for health, safety, and as well as environmental protection.
- ISO – This seals certifies that the manufacturer, its manufacturing process, management system, documentation process, and the services that they provide, all complies with the ISO’s quality assurance and standardization.
- REACH – This seal verifies that the manufacturing of the power push button switch did not use any restricted chemicals or dangerous levels of chemicals that could impose health risks for consumers and the environment.
- RoHS – This means that the manufacturer complies with the non-use of identified hazardous materials to ensure that the power push button switch is safe for consumers to touch and use.
- TUV Rheinland – This seal means that the manufacturer has passed an independent safety inspection of their facilities, technical systems, pieces of machinery, and other tools.
- UL – This signifies that the power push button switch has passed a safety analysis after being subjected to various safety testing procedures.
If you see that these seals are present in your manufacturer or your chosen power push button switch, then you can be confident that it is safe and has world class quality.
International standard and quality seals
22. Do you need a checklist before purchasing the power push button switch?
If you exactly know what type of power push button switch you will need for your application, then perhaps you no longer need any checklist.
But sometimes making a list can help you rethink your choices and be careful enough to choose the right power push button switch.
Here’s a sample checklist that you can use to help you find the best power push button switch for your application.
- What is the purpose or application of the power push button switch?
- How many power push button switches do you need?
- What is the size of the power push button switch in diameter?
- What shape do you need? (Round? Square? Or customized?)
- What type of color do you want for your power push button switch?
- What is the LED color of your power push button switch?
- What switch action do you need? (momentary or latching)
- Do you need a specific configuration type? (SPST, SPDT, DPST, or DPDT?)
- What properties do you want your power push button switch to have? (anti vandal, water resistant, water proof)
- What terminal types do you prefer? (also the number of terminals)
- Do you require a particular voltage rating?
By answering this easy checklist, you can be assured that you will be able to purchase what type of power push button switch you need for your application.
It will also help you keep your budget within target since you don’t have to repurchase if you have bought the wrong type of power push button switch.
Therefore, you are on track with your schedule, you don’t delay any operations, and you have saved money.
23. What you must do when you receive a bad power push button switch?
Although manufacturers conduct meticulous quality inspections sometimes you still receive a bad power push button switch for some reason.
When this happens, you should immediately consult the manufacturer or the vendor where you purchased the power push button switch and inform them of the problem.
They will advise you about its warranty and how to get it replaced or perhaps repaired.
You may be asked to return the faulty power push button switch to the manufacturer at your own expense.
Once the manufacturer receives the bad switch, they will inspect if it’s a factory defect or shipment mishandling.
They have the prerogative if they will repair or replace the bad push button switch with a new one.
The timeframe of this whole process can take several days or weeks because it will mostly rely on the duration of the shipment to the manufacturer and then back to you.
But if the power push button switch was damaged due to human error or natural calamity, it may not be covered by the warranty.
You may be charged with the repair fees or replacement costs.
This is why you must read the warranty paperwork of the power push button switch or any other products so that you know how long the warranty coverage is and its specific coverage.
