TE Connectivity Releases New Solderless LED Array Holder Platform

TE Connectivity (TE), a global technology leader, has announced today the release of an innovative and scalable, solderless LED array holder platform that enables connectivity to a wide range of LED arrays from industry leaders.

The TE solderless LED holder is a small, low profile, flexible LED holder that provides a quick and easy solderless connection to chip on board (COB) array LEDs. This low cost, straight forward design provides dependable power connection, mechanical attachment and reliable thermal hold down force necessary for the LED array.

TE’s holder eliminates soldering challenges and allows the direct attachment of LEDs to a heat sink using standard screws, making designs more reliable, easier to user, and faster to market. They are quick and simple to install, greatly decreasing installation time while increasing reliability and quality control.

“With the growing demand and options for COB LEDs, TE is committed to expanding our holder solutions to enable customers with smarter, better, and faster products for their specific choice of LED. The scalable platform is designed with the future in mind utilising a scalable, flexible platform to enable fast adoption of today's and tomorrow’s leading LED arrays,” said Bart Broeren, Global Product Manager, TE Intelligent Buildings.

In addition to their ease of use, TE’s holders are robustly engineered, reliable and feature rich. Today, TE has launched holders for 24 different LED families, including two piece corner connectors for ultimate flexibility and one piece preassembled units configured to each LED package size dramatically simplifying assembly.

The optional metal thermal spring enhances pressure on heat sink for a variety of thermal interface materials without damage to ceramic substrates while the housing design minimizes obstructed light output from LED. TE uses white lighting grade materials with high reflectivity properties and rounded corners to minimize shadowing. An optical keep out zone provides a clear landing area for secondary optics.

The TE Holders are RoHS compliant and suitable for a variety of commercial, residential and general lighting applications such as:
•Spotlights
•Downlights
•Retrofit bulbs
•Retail and hospitality lighting
