Supplier part number: 70-9159
Name:Single 2 Piece Contacts
Description:Dissecting linear LED lighting from a connector standpoint looks very simple from far away, but up close there is no magical solution. Even though there have been new connectors developed in recent years specifically for this application, the specific requirements in challenging new designs continue to push for something better, different and more cost competitive. AVX has been one of the companies developing new connector systems for this specific application. The 2-Piece 9159 series offers the smallest profile while still supporting full 5 Amp capability. The 1-Piece version offers the best cost advantage for a connectorized solution, yet has limitations in LED pitch densities. - AVX’s latest approach is to not even have a connector! LED’s run down the center of the board looking to minimize pitch densities to maximize light output. Connectors interrupt this requirement at each Board-to-Board interface. By design and construction, providing a single contact connector is not economical. However, removing the cost of the connector without removing the functionality provides both a technical and cost effective solution. By removing the insulator and allowing contacts to be placed individually, the PCB can be designed with the LED’s in the center of the PCB and the contacts on the outer edges. This optimizes the design for functionality and assembly at the best cost possible. More specifically, the contacts are packaged in T&R for automatic placement, absorb significant x and y assembly tolerances and provide a reliable gold-to-gold active contact interface. Application notes are available to outline all of the contact configurations to support both BTB and WTB applications.
