Phoenix 375VA/12 Remote on-off switch with indication LED

Hi,

I would like to connect a custom switch with an indicator LED to the remote on-off connector.

I'm looking something like: "H - LED - Series resistor - Switch ON/OFF - L" solution.

How much voltage drop is allowed between the H & L terminals? And what is the current (xx mA?) flowing between H & L terminals? ( Do I need a series resistor and if so what resistance without interfering functionality?)

I need to maintain solid motorhome interior appearance by using similar power switches everywhere and therefore the following Victron product is not an option for me: Phoenix Inverter Control VE.Direct - Victron Energy

Kind Regards, Ilkka

problem solved. Seems that the current is anyway fairly low; just made a trial with standard blue LED. No need for serial resistor; LED is not too bright so apparently the current is fairly low and system is not suffering from relatively high voltage drop introduced by the blue led. didn't measure the current though... (didn't find my portable multimeter :)
