A new high power inverted thru board SMT connector from TE Connectivity is now in stock at TTI. Available in 2, 3 and 4 positions, the device provides a means to bring power to LED aluminium clad boards from the underside of the printed circuit board. The mating Economy Power II plug connectors, based on a 3.96mm pitch, are rated for 600VAC up to 7A and accept 22 – 18 AWG stranded wire sizes that are ideal for delivering power to printed circuit boards.
Designed for indoor and outdoor solid state lighting fixtures, solid state lighting modules and controls, as well as industrial/commercial meters and controls, TE’s SMT connector eliminates wire dress management issues with discrete wire leads around the top surface of LED printed circuit boards. Benefiting from rounded corners to prevent shadowing, the fully RoHS compliant component features a low profile top surface height of only 2.00mm above the LED printed circuit board where it is positioned in cutout or notch. Surface mount board locks provide stability during mating and unmating.
The connector is made of high temperature proof material, making it ideal for reflow soldering processes. The device comes packaged in tape and reel format for high speed SMT processing and the flat top surface allows for vacuum pick up. EP II cable assemblies are available upon request.
