AVX Expands LED Lighting Connector Family To Include Board-to-Board Versions

AVX Corporation has expanded its wire-to-board connector product offering to include board-to-board connectors designed for the LED lighting industry.

Designated the 9159 Series, the cost-effective connectors provide design flexibility by offering both card edge (one-piece) and plug-and-socket (two-piece) interconnect options. The connectors feature a small footprint, making them ideal for applications where multiple printed circuit boards need to be plugged together, such as LED lighting strips.

The double-ended card edge version provides a simple and direct connection to both ends of a standard PCB with tin plated pads in 2, 3, 4 and 5 positions.  These 2.0mm pitch connectors support 3 amp current and 250 voltage ratings. The connectors are 5.0mm high and come in both black and white options.

The two-piece connector version is surface mounted on one side of the PCB, which allows the LEDs to be placed on the other side to maintain consistent spacing.  These 3.0mm pitch and 3.0mm high connectors are only 5.50mm wide when mated together, thus maximizing board space for other components.  Tooled in 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 position, these connectors are also available in black and white options.

The new 9159 Series connectors provide simple, yet reliable termination of PCBs.  The 9159 Series is tested to industrial levels of shock, vibration and temperature cycling per IEC specifications to assure they can withstand the harsh environments they were designed for.  The connectors are ideal for use in LED lighting strips for sports arena signs, display cases, lighted cabinets, fluorescent tube replacement and architectural lights used for building feature enhancement or internal feature lighting. The connectors also suited for rugged industrial and automotive applications.

Both versions of the 9159 Series connectors are rated in current at 3A and have an operating temperature ranges of -55°C to +125°C.

Additional components in the 9159 product family include:
• SSL - Horizontal Plug; Standard 2-Piece solution (10-9159)
• SSL - Cabled Plug; Supports wire-to-board applications (11-9159)
• SSL - Horizontal Socket; Standard 2-Piece solution (20-9159)
• SSL - Shorting Socket; Two position (58-9159)
• SSL - Retaining Clip; Latches BTB connectors together (80-9159)

These connectors are supplied in tape and reel packing and are RoHS-compliant.
