New LED technology-based lighting concepts increasingly call for new connectors using an almost white insulator. The normally black insulators absorb a certain amount of light by their very nature. This can lead to a lighting design where a shadow effect may emerge in the connector area. Fischer Elektronik is now addressing this problem with a new connector series for LED inline modules by offering 2.5 mm grid male and female headers in SMD soldering versions. These headers are available in two- and four-pole variants, with further pole counts upon request. In addition, the product range features matching mains connectors for supplying the LED system with power by means of a cable connection. These cables can either be rigid or flexible, in a size of AWG 24 - 20. The connectors are delivered in a "tape and reel" (TR) packing to enable efficient assembly. The cases have a robust and form-fitting design.
