Hirose Introduces Industry's Lowest Profile LED Module Connectors

Hirose, a leader in the design and manufacture of innovative connector solutions, has launched an easy to use, tool-less strip & poke connector ideal for LED lighting module applications. With a height of only 4.2mm, the KN27 Series combines a space saving design of 3.9mm width (for single contact) and 11.85mm length - all using a standard industry footprint. In addition, the smaller KN27 Series offers a higher current rating of up to 9A.

The KN27 Series connector was developed to replace traditional terminal blocks in LED lighting module applications. The strip & poke design eliminates the need to screw down the connection and check for loosened terminal block screws, which offers a more reliable termination that reduces installation variation, time, and cost.

The KN27 Series LED lighting connector features a rugged 2-point contact design that provides a reliable connection. The connector has an internal guide system that makes cable insertion simple and foolproof. A lever provides for easy cable extraction.

"Hirose has raised the bar by lowering the height of LED lighting module connectors," said Rick van Weezel, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Hirose Electric USA. "The KN27 Series combines one of the industry’s lowest profile connector with a 2-point contact system for maximum reliability in a miniature package."

The KN27 Series is offered in 1-pin or 2-pin models, and accepts 18 to 24 AWG. The connector meets halogen-free requirements and is RoHS compliant.
