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

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 Simple “metal plates with electrical components” have been replaced by sophisticated electronic devices.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. Read more »

BJB SMD Terminal Blocks: The Best Connection for all Requirements

BJB SMD Terminal Blocks: The Best Connection for all Requirements SMD-compatible PCB terminal blocks are increasingly being used for electrical power supply to LED boards. This is because they are easy to handle and provide a permanent, secure connection to the control gear. A decisive factor for light quality is a design which is as flat as possible, which will enable an even light distribution and will avoid unwelcome shadowing. However, there are also technical requirements dictated by the relevant luminaire design. Examples are rear-entry wiring or the use of fine-stranded conductors. In order to cover every conceivable variation, BJB, the global market leader for lighting and luminaire components, has developed a series of three different SMD terminal blocks: SMD Mini, SMD Mini-Flex and the SMD push-through terminal block for rear-entry wiring.
