Molex LED Array Holder Provides a Solder-Free Connector for Citizen's New Chip on Board (COB) Arrays

Molex Incorporated announced today that its new LED array holder will support Citizen Electronics’ recently introduced Chip on Board (COB) series of arrays: CLL010, CLL020, CLL030, CLL040 and CLL050.

Molex currently offers LED array holders for the Citizen CLL-330 and CLL340 LED array products, which provide unique compression contacts to power the arrays while eliminating the need for hand soldering or expensive Surface Mount Technology (SMT) equipment. Ideal for light fixture original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), the holders reduce installation time and increase connectivity options while lowering costs. The solderless screw-down connection allows for a standardised manufacturing process, adding to the design flexibility of the Citizen COB series of LEDs.

Molex LED array holders are ideal for all general illumination applications including downlighting, architectural lighting and area lighting. The thermoplastic housing supports high heat-generating environments and the holders comply with UL 496 specifications.

Molex LED array holders are available through Molex franchised distributors. The company anticipates parts will be available for both samples and high volume sales in spring 2012.

Additional information on the new LED holders can be found in the preliminary datasheet
or at www.molex.com/link/ledholdercitizen.html.
