TE Connectivity Introduces ITB Releasable Poke-In Connectors for LED Lighting Applications

TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, has unveiled BUCHANAN WireMate ITB (Inverted Thru-Board). These wire-to-board connectors are for use in linear and circular LED modules found in all sorts of commercial and industrial lighting systems.

With their easy-to-use poke-in and wire release features, the new connectors help shorten installation times and provide extra flexibility for reuse and wire replacement. No crimping or soldering is needed when attaching wires; once inserted, wires are strongly retained and will not inadvertently pull out. A robust integral release feature allows rework, if required.

In addition, the reduced profile of the BUCHANAN WireMate connectors takes only 2 mm in height above the PCB top surface while horizontal wire insertion minimizes space usage beneath the PCB.

"These new connectors are particularly versatile," says Product Manager Asam Jiang. "Each one can accommodate any combination of solid and stranded wires, ranging in size from 22-18 AWG (0.35-0.75 mm2). They conform to the UL 1977 standard for component connectors for use in data, signal, control and power applications."

The Buchanan WireMate ITB wire-to-board connectors have a maximum voltage rating of 320 V and a current rating of 6 A (for 18AWG wiring) or 5 A (20 and 22AWG). They are molded in a high-temperature-resistant nylon (PPA) casing that withstands high temperature SMT soldering temperatures. The connectors are modular in design, available for up to five wire connections and in different colors to help installers avoid mistakes when inserting wires.
