Wire-to-Board Connectors Are Ultra-SmallThe new LEA Series wire-to-board, crimp style disconnectable connectors recently introduced by JST Corporation, Waukegan, Illinois, provide optimum performance and subminiature size for low current, low voltage conditions required by LED light bars. A super compact, low profile connector, the LEA has a 1.8 mm (.071”) pitch. With a mated side entry height of only 3.0 mm (.118”), its low profile prevents interference with the luminescence angle of the pcb mounted LEDs. These highly reliable, side entry SMT connectors are polarized and incorporate positive locking features including an audible click to prevent accidental disconnection.

Molded in a RoHS compliant 94V0 9T Nylon (SMT headers) resin, the LEA Series is available in a 2 circuit size.

Rated at 3.0 A AC/DC (using 22 or 24 AWG) at 300VAC. Wire sizes AWG #22 to #30 are accommodated. Temperature range is – 55oC to +105oC (including temperature rise in applying electrical current). The crimp contact housings are molded of a UL94V-0 rated, glass filled PBT resin. The housing is notched on one side for ease of locating the pin1 position. Contacts are made of tin-plated, copper alloy base material. Copper alloy, tin-plated reinforcement tabs offer strength and stability to the mounted headers.

Contacts are offered on standard size reels for semi-automatic or fully automatic application tooling while mini-reels are offered for mini-reel hand tools. SMT headers are provided on embossed tape for automatic insertion equipment.
