New BJB LED Connector for Linear LED Modules: Book 21 Compliant

New BJB LED Connector for Linear LED Modules: Book 21 Compliant

Lampholders were standard in older, traditional lighting systems. Modern LED fixtures that utilize non-replaceable LEDs create several assembly and field-replacement disadvantages. Zhaga Book 21 addresses these shortcomings by standardizing linear 'socketable' LED modules. In accordance with Book 21, BJB has developed the new LED connector 47.303; a two-part fixing and electrical connection system, which enables LED modules to be installed and subsequently replaced as easily as conventional light sources. Incorporating the BJB 47.303 series results in reduced assembly costs and dramatically faster retrofit or replacement times.
