LED Solderless Socket Solution Now Available

Solderless LED Socket, Type CM

A global leader in engineered electronic components and solutions releases the solderless LED socket, Type CM, for solderless, quick termination of the new 1500 lumen output multichip LED.  This solderless termination technique facilitates easy integration of the LED into the end user’s lighting fixtures with simple screw-down installation.  Multiple versions are offered to provide application flexibility.

The new socket offers customers a simple termination solution for the LED, while allowing ample optical clearance for un-lensed applications.  For lensed applications, the socket incorporates a snap-on connect feature for the LEDIL Tyra series of reflectors, which offer directional optics in 18, 30, and 50 degree beam angles.

The solderless LED socket provides a rapid termination solution for the LED’s six 0.60 mm² connection pads that are mounted on the top of the LED.  This low-profile socket eliminates the need to solder by providing a solderless solution that reduces assembly time while providing a repeatable and separable termination.  In addition, the socket is conveniently offered in two versions to suit wire or board applications–each version is offered with or without attachment features for optics.  A third version with an inverted connection option is available.

The wire termination version incorporates a mini CT connector header that mates to a cable-mounted mini CT plug–allowing for quick, easy wire connections.  This version eliminates the need for a circuit board, and allows the LED to be mounted directly to the heat sink using a thermally conductive adhesive.  A six-inch mini CT pigtail assembly is also offered to provide a complete interconnect solution for the LED implementation.

The board termination version, suitable for PCB-mount applications, provides a solderless termination directly to the PCB from the LED.  This version suits applications where drive circuitry and remote connectors are integrated onto the same board as the LED.

The socket design, recognized to UL 1977 requirements, utilizes standard, commercially-available hardware for attachment.
