Linear Flat System - Also the Right Choice for Power Tracks

Linear Flat System - Also the Right Choice for Power Tracks Power tracks are very often used in shops and retail outlets in order to implement various lighting scenarios quickly and easily. Different arrangements and individual positioning are always necessary when the presentation of the product range changes. And that happens more than just once a year. Matched with special drivers which fi t on a power track, the Linear Flat System, together with a lampholder and counterholder, forms a complete modular system for linear lighting in current power track systems. In this way, it is possible to construct a lighting system with interchangeable LED modules without any additional luminaire housings. Read more »

SMD Push-to-Fix (P2F) by BJB. Solderable Mounting Elements for LED Boards

SMD_P2F_Grafik_Phase01.png BJB has developed the solderable Push-to-Fix(P2F) SMD fixing element for an especially simple and quick mounting of LED boards in luminaire housings. It is suitable for Low- and Midpower LED-Boards in linear and flat luminaires. The outstanding feature of it is the pre-attachment of the spring clip, which takes place by means of a solder plate during the SMD mounting process. During the final installation, the board is then fixed in the luminaire housing by a simple click. This can be performed by hand as well as automatically. Read more »

Out Now: Electro Terminal's Whole Range of Microcon SMD Power Connectors

Out Now: Electro Terminal's Whole Range of Microcon SMD Power Connectors The introduction of LED lighting has revolutionized the way lighting systems are designed. Simple “metal plates with electrical components” have been replaced by sophisticated electronic devices. Electro Terminal has developed the Microcon SMD Power connector to provide direct mains voltage supply to electronic PCBs within a lighting system. This connector is only 7 mm high and facilitates easy entry of solid and flexible wires of 0.5 mm² to 2.5 mm². The whole range is out now – Microcon SMDP with one pole (1P), two poles (2P) and three poles (3P). In addition, the internally connected two-way version (2C) is available to limit the current load for daisy-chain wiring on the PCB. Read more »

BJB SMD Terminal Blocks: The Best Connection for all Requirements

BJB SMD Terminal Blocks: The Best Connection for all Requirements SMD-compatible PCB terminal blocks are increasingly being used for electrical power supply to LED boards. This is because they are easy to handle and provide a permanent, secure connection to the control gear. A decisive factor for light quality is a design which is as flat as possible, which will enable an even light distribution and will avoid unwelcome shadowing. However, there are also technical requirements dictated by the relevant luminaire design. Examples are rear-entry wiring or the use of fine-stranded conductors. In order to cover every conceivable variation, BJB, the global market leader for lighting and luminaire components, has developed a series of three different SMD terminal blocks: SMD Mini, SMD Mini-Flex and the SMD push-through terminal block for rear-entry wiring.
