Connector specialist, Global Connector Technology (GCT) now offers an economical solution for connecting PCB strips in end-to-end orientation.
Desirable in solid-state lighting applications where space is limited, in combination a vertical SMT socket and U-Shaped header allow horizontal PCB mating with plugging from above. The GCT solution allows LED strip PCB’s to be slotted into place and a U-Shaped header to be plugged in later, an additional benefit is easy repair and maintenance.
The White Lite connector range is available in 2 – 6 circuits, vertical socket (BG306) mates with either single insulator (BG304) and double insulator (BG305) U Shaped headers. Insulators are LCP in natural colour for better aesthetic effect, the light coloured parts reduce light absorption and shadows. All options are available in stock for rapid same day sampling, says the company.
