New 47.360 COB Connectors from BJB

To determine the value of COB connectors, one must consider the performance of the connectors after many years of service. Do the contacts last? Is the material still stable after thousands of cycles and exposure to UV light? Does the connector outlive the LED? Other deciding factors when selecting a COB holder include ease of installation and geometrical standardization.

The most important advantages are:
•    Overall height only 3.5 mm
•    Diameter 35, 44 and 50 mm
•    Simple pre-assembly fixing mechanism
•    Wiring possible from one or two sides
•    Extensive range of reflector and optics accessories
•    Optional fixing of module with BJB Push-to-Fix fixing elements
•    In conformity with Zhaga Book 11

With the 47.360 series of COB connectors, BJB achieves new dimensions in quality and design. From the housing material to the pre-assembly fixing mechanism, a wide range of criteria were considered during development. The result is a product range which meets or exceeds the requirements of the user to a greater extent than ever before. The aim was to guarantee long-term benefits: these products succeed in doing so in every way.

The development of this series involved extensive research work and rigorous testing, utilizing BJB’s decades of experience in the field of plastics processing and module assembly with various materials. The objective is to provide a safe and durable connection of insulating and conductive components, like that required for classic lampholders. Overall, there are significant improvements in four important areas: the housing material, the contacting system, the COB pre-assembly fixing mechanism and the design.

In particular, the flexible handling of these COB connectors also facilitates automated assembly processes. This is due to the well-thought-out geometry with wire entry on one or both sides, embedded contacts with silver-plated contact points and a pre-assembly fixing spring which makes adhesive pads for holding the COB’s superfluous. Finally, with the extensive range of reflector and optics accessories available, luminaire manufacturers can assemble finished modules for spot and downlights very quickly and easily.
