The new LEN Series wire-to-board, crimp style, disconnectable connectors recently introduced by JST Corporation (Waukegan, Il) offer subminiature size, design flexibility, and reliable contact construction for high density LED light applications. These 3.0 mm (.118”) pitch, side entry (right angle), SMT connectors are polarized and feature insertion guides for easy and secure insertion of the mating LEN housings. A hinge lock secures the socket to the header while a friction lock provides an audible click when mating, preventing accidental disconnection due to routing of wires or vibration. Ideally suited for LED light applications, the LEN Series is designed for maximum pcb flexibility with a mated height of only 3.0 mm (.118”). The low profile of the connector does not interfere with the luminescence angle of the pcb LED dies. The LEN crimp style connector series:
- Is available in two and three circuits with a 3.0 A (AC/DC) rating using a 22 AWG wire at 300 V AC/DC.
- Accommodates wire sizes AWG # 22 to 24.
- Covers a temperature range of -55°C to +105°C.
