Lite-Trap™ and Mini Lite-Trap™ Connector System

Lite-Trap™ and Mini Lite-Trap™ SMT, Wire-to-Board Connector System - Molex

Ideal for thin LED lighting-module applications, Molex's Lite-Trapô and Mini Lite-Trapô SMT wire-to-board connectors offer the lowest profile options available for wire-removable types, with an easy-to-use push-button latch and low-profile top-and-bottom entry styles for reduced shadowing.

The termination method of Molex's Lite-Trap connector system is similar to Molex's Wire Trap connectors, and also to certain competitive "Poke-In" style versions. A stripped wire is inserted into the connector and pushes open a gate-style terminal that "traps" the wire. To unmate, a button-style lever on the housing top can be pushed down manually - eliminating the need for a separate tool - to allow the wire to be disengaged. This feature provides easy field assembly and removal by both trained or untrained operators.

With profile heights as low as 2.65mm, Molex's Lite-Trap connectors offer an ultra-thin profile to prevent shadowing in LED lighting applications. The system also offers lower wire insertion force than similar types.

Other features of the Lite-Trap connector system include a housing design that accepts more insulation-length range than competitive designs. This provides more stable wire seating for electrical contact assurance. The dual-contact wire-trap clamp design provides further mating assurance.
