TE – Solderless LED socket for new Sharp Mini ZENIGATA LED (Type SMIZ)Aug 3 2012 - Design Applications [More Design Applications Articles]
TE Connectivity has announced the release of a new solderless socket for the Sharp Mini ZENIGATA LED. The new solderless LED socket, Type SMIZ is precision engineered and designed specifically to assure a reliable ‘plug and play’ complete solution.
“Today’s world is becoming increasingly efficient and connected, and advanced energy-efficient lighting systems are one of the primary focus markets of our intelligent buildings team. At TE, we strive to bring innovation and customer benefit to the lighting industry as we work to provide solutions that solve next-generation connectivity challenges”, said Peter Lieffrig, general manager of TE’s intelligent buildings business.
The two-piece socket provides a mechanical and solderless electrical connection to the LED. Solderless connecting is not only easy, but also quick. Not soldering to chip-on-board LEDs enables a uniform and reliable connection that can be made without special skills. It also reduces the risk of damaging the LED by the heat of the solder process or with solder flux spatters on the light emitting area. The socket holds the LED mechanically and firmly to the heat sink using M2 screws and locator posts on the housing to aid correct positioning. The solderless LED socket, Type SMIZ is RoHS compliant and suitable for various applications such as indoor and outdoor lighting retrofit LED lamp applications, architectural illumination, reading lamps, spotlights, pendant lights, mobile lighting, and area and object lighting.Electropages - Electronics Components News, From Leading Electronics Distributors.
