Arduino Digital Switch Code




This is basic for your arduino projects, input switch read from digital input. When ever switch pressed, LED will turn on.

 

PushButton_arduino_code




PushButton_arduino_code

 

Instruction;
1) Connect cathode lead of LED (shorter lead) to ground pin and anode lead of LED (longer lead) to pin 13.

2) Add switch to breadboard, connect one of the switch lead to 5V pin.

3) Add 10kΩ resistor as in diagram and connect another switch lead to digital pin 2.

4) Connect GND to 10kΩ resistor.

  digitalWrite(13, switchValue);
}

pinMode(2, INPUT);
set digital pin 2 as input (from switch)
