    Should be no problem, they appear to be simple contact closure P.B.'s.

    Ideally you have to remove the board sw first and solder a pair of wires to the two contacts, the other end to what ever N.O. P.B. or?
    You could use a LiPo battery for recharge and long life.

    Just wire a pair of conductors to the PCCT strips of the switch you remove and the other end to a N.O. P.B. etc

    Nice I will solder the two wires, do you think the electric wire from the micro switch can be attache to the board or de I need to get the power elsewhere?

    You should not need any other connection.

    You can get illuminated P.B.'s that a clear mylar image or text can be printed on and placed under the front of the switch, different colours are available.
    The alternative is to get something engraved with Lamacoid from any engraver, if they have the symbols you want.

    Hello,

    You could check the pins with a multimeter.
    The larger version of the switch will be connected like this:

    So I tried to connect it, everytime I try the board shuts down and I need to restart the board. It when I hold a wire to one of the parts that is the electric part.
