Lightmite LB

Lightmite LB is a leaf button lighting solution. It allows a neat and quick way to light translucent leaf buttons using superbright LEDs. The bare pcb through a fully assembled unit is available. The assembled unit is available in 5Volt and 12Volt. Complete assembled units are designed to run on DC current but they can be assembled to utilize AC current. See instructions for details below. Lightmite LB is a non-invasive way to light up buttons. All that is needed is to place it between the button holder and pal nut and bend the LEDs into place. While most PCBs are 1/16" thick, these boards are only 1/32" thick. This allows the Lightmite LB to fit under the pal nut even when space is tight. Complete versions come with connectors and crimp pins. Wires can also be soldered directly to the board if desired. Connect your positive and negative leads to the header on the Lightmite and tap into either a 5V or 12V source. Can be used on video arcade games, pinball machines, or anything that uses leaf switch buttons. See picture to the left for pinball flipper button mounting when the pal nut is recessed. Please check for compatiblily first, not all leaf switch buttons are installed the same. Kits are sold individually and not in pairs. For a typical pinball machine you will need two kits.
