TE Connectivity’s new Z50 Lumawise LED holders help ensure optimal LED placement, since they integrate all electrical, mechanical, thermal and optical connections in a single unit.
Lumawise LED holders are designed to accommodate all common thermal-interface materials as well as providing secondary optical interfaces for off-the-shelf optics. They are compatible with LEDs from leading manufacturers including Philips Lumileds.
Lighting equipment manufacturers can use the Z50 to make their fixtures easy to assemble: the holder’s snap-in LED housing helps to secure the LED to the holder before mounting. A poke-in wire connection, which eliminates the need to solder the LED, also helps to save time on the production line.
The Z50’s clever mechanical construction provides down force and secures the electrical connection over a wide range of operating temperatures, minimising the influence of thermal plastic deformation. In addition, the LED holder features a builtin overflow so that excessive application of thermal paste will not detract from the appearance or cleanness of the fixture.
The Z50 provides a stable landing area for additional secondary optics, and ensures a firm mechanical fit to the LED holder. It supports optics from manufacturers including Carclo, Khatod and Ledil.
