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.
