Out Now: Electro Terminal's Whole Range of Microcon SMD Power Connectors

The introduction of LED lighting has revolutionized the way lighting systems are designed. Simple “metal plates with electrical components” have been replaced by sophisticated electronic devices. Electro Terminal has developed the Microcon SMD Power connector to provide direct mains voltage supply to electronic PCBs within a lighting system. This connector is only 7 mm high and facilitates easy entry of solid and flexible wires of 0.5 mm² to 2.5 mm². The whole range is out now – Microcon SMDP with one pole (1P), two poles (2P) and three poles (3P). In addition, the internally connected two-way version (2C) is available to limit the current load for daisy-chain wiring on the PCB.

All advantages at a glance:
•    Clamping range 0.5 - 2.5 mm²
•    Nominal current 16 A
•    For solid and flexible wires
•    Wires easily detachable with push-button
•    For manual and automatic wiring
•    Internally connected version available
•    Top sided test opening provided
•    Marking available

The Microcon SMD Power connector can be produced with a marking and has a test opening on the top. Wires can easily be released by pressing a push button. Tape-on-reel packaging enables automated connector assembly and SMT design makes wave soldering for connectors obsolete. Microcon SMD Power is perfectly suitable for driver-on-board solutions as well as very low-profile drivers with integrated power supply.
