Where to use push button?
Push Buttons are normally-open tactile switches. Push buttons allow us to power the circuit or make any particular connection only when we press the button. Simply, it makes the circuit connected when pressed and breaks when released. A push button is also used for triggering of the SCR by gate terminal. These are the most common buttons which we see in our daily life electronic equipment’s. Some of the applications of the Push button are mentioned at the end of the article.
How to use a push button?
When connecting in between of supply and the circuit we should only connect the wires with both the legs of the Push-Button as shown in the circuit below:
A Push-Button can also be used for the triggering purpose like of SCR. An SCR is a gate controlled Switch which needs a triggering pulse. So, for this we can add a Push button in the circuit to give a triggering pulse, as shown in the circuit below:
- Push-button telephones
- Kitchen appliances
- Magnetic locks
- Various other mechanical and electronic devices, home and commercials.
