TE Connectivity announces solderless holder for Sharp Mini Zenigata LED
Date Announced: 07 Feb 2013
Connector solution reduces costs and improves assembly of LED lighting products
TE Connectivity today announced the release of the LED Holder, Type Z32, for the SHARP Electronics Mini ZENIGATA LED*.
The small, low profile, circular Type Z32 LED Holder provides a quick and easy solderless power connection to the Sharp Mini ZENIGATA LED chip on board family, enabling designs to be more reliable, easier to use, and faster to market.
The Type Z32 eliminates hand solder operations reducing costs associated with assembly and rework. Direct attachment of the LED Holder to the heat sink using standard screws secures the LED without damaging or cracking the substrates that could lead to latent field defects.
The Type Z32 provides a snap-in LED retention feature that makes handling Sharp Mini ZENIGATA LEDs easier and faster to install into fixtures. The holder simplifies the design by providing the proper thermal hold down forces and provides an excellent landing zone for secondary optics.
“TE LED holder solutions are the core of LED electrical, thermal, and optical connectivity. The Type Z32 is another step enabling the adoption of LED lighting by reducing applied costs and improving assembly of lighting OEM products,” said Bart Broeren, Global Product Manager, TE Intelligent Buildings.
TE’s Z32 holder’s sleek design produces a clean, aesthetically appealing appearance making it ideal for use in spotlights, downlights, retrofit lamps and various indoor and outdoor lighting applications.
