TE Connectivity Micro Poke-in
Wire SSL Connector
TE Connectivity introduced the Micro Poke-In Wire SSL Connector as a low-profile, printed circuit board connector. Developed specifically for LED lighting applications, the connector features a flat surface for vacuum pick and place, rounded corners to minimize shadowing, a high-temperature resistant thermoplastic housing to enable reflow processing, 250 VAC/VDC at 3A max. rating for power handling, and wire termination to reduce the time-intensive task of hand soldering leads to the lighting board. With the small size of 8.2mm (L) x 3.3mm (W) x 2.475mm (H), the Micro Poke-In Wire SSL Connector is less than 1/3 the height and length of TE's standard SMT poke-in wire one position connector and is well-suited for smaller boards and light modules. The connector is available in a one-position style that accepts 24 and 26 AWG solid wire only, has a wire retention force of 6N, a creepage distance is 1.5mm.
