Bender & Wirth Introduces Ultra Low Profile LED Connection Cystem

Bender & Wirth extends its successful LED connector line with the new version 425 for high-voltage applications. The system is suitable for 250V AC / 450V DC and keeps an insulation distance of 3mm, as recommended by the ZVEI for main volt applications. The connection system is characterized by its extremely low profile of 1,5mm in SMD technology to avoid shadows inside the lighting fixture.

The system includes:
•    board-to-board connector (425) for space-saving connection of PCBs
•    feede r(424) as wire-to-board connector
•    SMD pins (423) belted in pairs for automatic SMD mounting

The feeder 424 serves as wire-to-board connector. The wires are welded to the contact element and provide a very robust and reliable connection. Cable type and length can be modified.

The connectors are easily assembled from the top onto the preinstalled SMD pins (423). The solderless connection allows efficient assemble processes and easy maintenance in the field.

The system is available in a two-pole version with a pitch of 5mm.
