Thief River Falls, Minn. Digi-Key Corp. is stocking new LED array holders from Molex Inc. Key features of the high-temperature parts include a screw-mount attachment method for securing the array to a heat sink, optional snap-lock optics that provide light source adjustment, and compression contacts that will power the array and eliminate soldering during installation.
Molex has simplified the LED mounting process by offering array holders that eliminate the need for hand or SMT soldering, said Digi-Key. These LED array holders install quickly into fixtures, enabling replacements in the field and allowing for easy upgrades to current applications. The new line also offers serviceability improvements by incorporating a releasable wire trap.
The array’s small form factor, less than 50.00 mm (1.96 in.) in diameter for ES arrays and 70.00 x 71.00 mm (2.75 x 2.80 in.) for RS arrays, makes these array holders suited for use in lamps and small-fixture applications.
These LED array holders can be purchased at Digi-Key’s global websites.
