SMT and Thru-Hole Poke-In Wire Lighting Connectors

TE Connectivity (TE), one of the world’s market leaders in connectivity solutions, offers SMT and Thru-Hole Poke-In Wire Lighting Connectors. The new thru-hole version joins the existing surface-mount connector to provide a low-profile solution suited for use in PCB-based LED strings, lighting controls and other nonlighting applications that can benefit from an easy poke-in wire termination to the PCB. The connectors are now available in one or two positions, with single-position connectors offered in white or black for easy polarity identification. Gel-filled versions are available for indoor or outdoor application where moisture is an issue. The standard- and low-insertion-force versions of the connectors are side-to-side stackable on 4-mm centers.

The TE poke-in connector offers quick and reliable wire termination as a low-labor alternative to hand soldering wires particularly when used with single-sided aluminum clad circuit boards. The poke-in LED connectors are available in tape and reel packages for high-speed SMT and thru-hole processing equipment and the high-temperature plastic housing is reflow solder process compatible.

The RoHS-compliant connector incorporates tin over nickel-plated copper alloy contacts with a UL94-V0 rated high temperature thermoplastic housing. Packaged in reels of 800, the tape and reel packaging conforms to ANSI/EIA Standard 481-C.
