    According to the itswitches datasheet you posted you need the 48-1-RB-N-BK-B.

    HOWEVER - when I typed that number into the Mouser website, the product detail page is still showing the Momentary box as unchecked. I'd contact Mouser if I were you to see if they have made a mistake. You need a momentary switch, normally open (NO).

    I use RP8100B2M1CEBLKBLKRED from Digikey (for red, you can also get other colours). I've used 6 so far, no problems with any of them.

    thank you guys for the info.....appreciate the reply's...... So yeah apparently Mouser.com has an error on their page describing part# 48-2-RB-N-BK-B on their description page has a momentary switch....instead of saying "momentary" it should say "maintained" I reported it to mouser.com about it...not sure if they will change it though.... thanks again for the links

    aztlan805,

    I think you are reading the Mouser page wrong. The line says "Momentary" with a check box next to it. If unchecked then it specifies that the switch is Maintained, if checked then it is a Momentary switch. Where the Mouser site is wrong (according to my interpretation of the itswitches datasheet) is that the page for the switch with the part number 48-1-RB-N-BK-B should have the "Momentary" box checked.

    Refer to the itswitches datasheet again and you will see that the Module Type 48-1 is for a Momentary switch and 48-2 is Maintained. The Mouser website has both module types with unchecked "Momentary" boxes indicating that they are both Maintained switches which is obviously wrong in the case of the 48-1-RB-N-BK-B which is the switch that I think you need.

    I hope that's clear.
