The connectors are available in two-, four- and six-position hermaphroditic versions for lighting, data and control connections. The low-profile connectors were designed with rounded corners to minimize LED light obstruction, flat-top surfaces for vacuum pickup, and high-temperature material for reflow processing. The hermaphroditic connectors are also available with a one-position blade and receptacle for narrow width spacing on LED printed circuit board applications.
TE’s 3 A, 300 VAC/DC rated connectors operate at temperatures between minus 40 degrees C and 105 degrees C with a 1600 VAC dielectric withstanding voltage rating. The connectors’ housings feature UL 94V0 rated high-temperature resistant thermoplastic material, and contacts are constructed using a high-conductivity copper alloy with tin-over-nickel plating.
The SMT miniature hermaphroditic connectors are best used in applications for architectural and sign lighting, retail and display lighting, fluorescent LED retrofit lighting, cabinet and furniture lighting, and commercial and residential cove lighting.
