July 11, 2017: W+P offers a vertical SMT 5262 LED connector series, with compact terminal blocks that allow extremely dense PCB assembly.
The standing SMT compact terminal blocks has a base area of just 6 x 7.4 mm, and allows extremely tight mounting on the PCB.
The cable strands are inserted from above into the insertion openings, and they get mechanically locked with a lever. The plug-in face is directed upwards, so no further space is required for mounting on the side of the PCB. Hence, it is ideal to be used in applications with very less space is required.
The LED compact terminal blocks are available as a SMT version. The contact material consists of a tin-plated copper alloy, the insulating body made of high-temperature-resistant plastic according to UL94 V-0. Both stranded and solid wires with conductor cross-sections of 0.21 – 0.35mm 2 (AWG 24-22) can be used as cables.
The new connectors are designed for a voltage immunity of 1kV AC and a nominal current of 5A. A safe function is guaranteed in a temperature range from -40 ° C to + 105 ° C.
