I am making a lamp that will have the following components (in order of flow of electricity from wall socket to bulb):
Type A plug, 120 V
On/off push button with alternate action (if I understand the terminology correctly this means press to turn on, press again to turn off, and the button surface returns to neutral position between presses)
Rotary dimmer: I am planning on using one made for a home wall, such as one by leviton or lutron, etc.
Light socket for A19 light bulb (the stereotypical bulb in homes) which will have a dimmable LED bulb
With this arrangement the light can be kept at the desired brightness while being turned on and off. I understand that the rotary dimmers I am planning to use have on/off push buttons built in, but for this design I need a separate on/off button.
The help I am hoping to find is… What specs should I look for in a suitable push button to ensure compatibility with the plug and the wall dimmer?
I imagine I may not be providing enough information; if so it’s just my ignorance and I will be glad to gather the needed info.
Thank you in advance for any help!
