TE Connectivity Offers New LED Holders Compatible With Most COB-LEDs

TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, has added the LUMAWISE Z45 LED Holder to its range of holders for chip-on-board (COB) LEDs. The new second-generation LED holder from TE is made in a high-strength, highly reflective halogen-free flame retardant thermoplastic (PBT). The Z45 LED holder is 5mm smaller in diameter compared to TE’s Z50 holder and uses adhesive for fast and easy assembly of the COB LEDs in the luminaire.

The LUMAWISE Z45 LED Holder provides a quick and easy solderless connection to COB-LED arrays, thanks to the use of poke-in contacts and adhesive bonding. It conforms to Zhaga standards for LED modules, making it compatible with other LED lighting components. The standard screw pitch of 35 mm enables the use of standard heatsink drilling and mounting procedures. The 120-degree optic angle of the LED holder keeps light loss to a minimum and the use of adhesive for LED assembly allows for high COB-board size tolerance, without the need for a clamping system. The design of the holder ensures even distribution of pressure from the LED across the heatsink.

The low profile of the new LUMAWISE Z45 LED Holder means that reflectors and lenses can be placed close to the light emitting surface. “At TE one of our goals is to design products that make the design process easier for engineers. This product, with a platform design that ensure optics are always at the same distance from the light emitting surface, makes it simple and easy to change LED package sizes without any redesign,” notes Jeroen Iedema, product manager at TE Connectivity.
