The pushbutton is a component that connects two points in a circuit when you press it. The example turns on an LED when you press the button. We connect three wires to the Arduino board. The first goes from one leg of the pushbutton through a pull-up resistor (here 2.2 KOhms) to the 5 volt supply.
Just connect the 5V from Arduino to the one side of the button and connect the other side of the button to the Pin 2 of Arduino. Then connect the pin 13 of Arduino to the positive side of LED and connect the other side of LED to the GND through the 220 ohm resistor.
When the button is closed (pressed), it makes a connection between its two legs, connecting the pin to 5 volts, so that we read a HIGH. You can also wire this circuit the opposite way, with a pullup resistor keeping the input HIGH, and going LOW when the button is pressed.
It is easy to connect a button to the Arduino without any resistors. Each button requires its own digital pin and resistor. The Arduino already has one pull-up resistor in each digital and analog pin, so in the end, all that is needed is one pin for each individual button.
A push button will need a resistor when it is used in conjunction with a microprocessor or microcontroller as an input. The main reason for using it is to ensure a defined state (0 or 1) is present at the micrcontroller’s input, otherwise the input could be left floating (which is unwanted).
How do you turn on led on Arduino?
Turn on LED if button is pressing. Turn off LED if button is NOT pressing. We will learn how to toggle LED each time button is pressed in Arduino – Button Toggles LED tutorial.
The initial state of the LED is off but if you want to be on you have to change int stateLED = HIGH; I had some problems initially with the code because the LED was not turning ON or OFF as I desired and discovered that there was a problem with debounce.
How do I upload code to my Arduino?
Connect Arduino to PC via USB cable. Open Arduino IDE, select the right board and port. Copy the above code and open with Arduino IDE. Click Upload button on Arduino IDE to upload code to Arduino. Press and keep pressing the button several seconds. See the change of LED’s state.
How does the if function work on an Arduino?
Using a if () function the Arduino makes some decisions: if the button is pressed (stateButton == 1) then give voltage to pin 2 (HIGH), else, if stateButton is not 1 (not pressed) do not output voltage on pin 2.
