TE Connectivity (TE) has introduced a range of low-profile, miniature hermaphroditic board-to-board connectors to carry power between adjacent linear LED lighting strip modules. The product family also includes a new wire-to-board connector bridging the driver to the first board in a string of linear LED modules.
The connectors may be mated and unmated horizontally and vertically, to provide for quick assembly. The flexibility of their mechanical configuration also means that a reduced inventory of parts can be used in a wide variety of applications.
The new parts are available in two-, four- and six-position hermaphroditic versions for monochrome and RGB power, data and control circuits. Their low-profile design with rounded corners minimises the amount of light from the LEDs that is obscured by the connector.
TE offers one-position blade and receptacle connectors suitable for the narrow spacings available on some LED PCBs. The connectors may be used in automated production equipment, having a flat top surface for vacuum pick-up, and high-temperature material suitable for re-flow processing.
