LED Engin's New Connector Boards Enable Faster, Easier Assembly of Solid State Lighting Fixtures

LED Engin, Inc., a leader in high lumen density LED products, announces a family of metal-core printed circuit boards (MCPCBs) with integral connectors that eliminate soldering during the assembly of LED fixtures. The poke-home connectors, which accept 18-24 AWG wires, offer quick, solderless assembly of fixtures and can eliminate the need for OEMs to use sub-contractors because the work can be taken in-house.

The boards utilize a common 50mm footprint for both the LuxiGen LZC 12 die and LZP 24 die series of high flux density emitters, helping OEMs to standardize fixture designs around a single form factor. The low thermal resistance MCPCBs mean that heat is effectively conducted away from the LEDs, so that the emitters can be driven up to 1000mA / die to maximize flux density without adversely affecting operating life or reliability. The boards feature mounting holes for LuxiGen TIR lens-holder legs for easy integration with secondary optics. There are mounting-screw cutouts to facilitate easy attachment of a heatsink, further simplifying the assembly process. The boards include one connector for the LED and one for an on-board thermistor to be used with common constant current sources with thermal feedback option.

Materials and components are selected to meet UL requirements.

About LED Engin, Inc:

LED Engin, based in California's Silicon Valley, specializes in ultra-bright, ultra-compact solid state lighting solutions that allow designers and engineers the freedom to create uncompromised yet energy efficient lighting experiences. Their
LuxiGen(TM) Platform - an emitter and lens combination or integration module solution, delivers superior flexibility in light output, ranging from 3W to 90W, a wide spectrum of available colors including whites, multi-color and UV, and the ability to deliver upwards of 5,000 high quality lumens to a target. The small size combined with powerful output allows for a previously unobtainable freedom of design wherever high flux density, directional light is required.

LED Engin products are sold directly through LED Engin sales channels and its distributors. They are available for immediate sampling. For additional information, or to find a sales representative, please
