IDC SSL Connector for Quick, Tool-Less Termination of Discrete Wires

TE Connectivity released the new IDC solid state lighting (SSL) connector for quick, tool-less termination of discrete wires onto LED printed circuit boards (PCBs).  The product terminates 18 through 24 AWG solid and stranded wire utilizing insulation displacement technology to eliminate the labor-intensive task of pre-stripping wires and soldering.

The robust design of the IDC SSL connector suits harsh environments in the solid state lighting industry. Specific LED applications include: lighting controls, general illumination fixtures and interconnection of strings in PCB light modules. Additionally, the product supports various non-lighting applications that require the attachment of discrete wire leads to PCBs. The RoHS-compliant connector -- available in one, two, three and four positions -- meets UL 1177 specifications.

Product offerings include SMT/thru-hole and closed-end/feed-thru configurations. The closed-end version contains a “viewing” window to ensure that the wire is fully seated and secure after termination.  The product, built with 94 V0-rated high-temperature resistant thermoplastic, enables reflow processing and features rounded corners to minimize shadowing. Wire gauges are color coded to enable precise wiring.
